Dillon Sheedy was elected as the newest member of the Hogs Hall of Fame this November during Alumni Weekend.
Sheedy was a natural choice for the honor, Hogs Foundation president Judge Taylor said, considering his contributions on and off the field for the team.
“Dillon was the starting goalie for three years, the team president for two years, earned WCLL All-League honors, was an Academic All-American and an all-around good guy — except on the field,” Taylor said. “He really liked to hit for a goalie.”
Sheedy said it was an honor to be inducted to the Hogs HOF and that he will forever love his Hog family.
“During my transition from college football to lacrosse, I couldn’t have imagined playing with a better group of guys for all three years. Most of them now are lifetime friends,” Sheedy said. “The Hogs and my success on the field would definitely not have been possible without those dedicated 13-15 men that played their hearts out every single game.”
During his career with Humboldt, the 6-foot-3 Truckee native made more than 480 saves in goal. Despite being the third goalie elected, Sheedy will always be the first legacy player in the Hall, as his father, Kerry Sheedy, was a defenseman during the Hog’s early years.
“My dad was happy to see me receive the HOF,” Sheedy said. “He did, however, play a much better alumni game than I did this year so I may be a bit more washed up than the old man.”
