Seven new members were enshrined.  Here is a profile of each inductee:

Stephen Peroutka – Past Parent
You would be hard pressed to find anyone who has been more supportive of the Archbishop Spalding Athletic Program over the past two decades than Steve Peroutka.

He created the Elizabeth Streb Peroutka Award in memory of his mother, to recognize individuals who supported this Charity Event. Steve was “The Voice of the Cavilers” broadcasting boys’ basketball games on a local station for almost a decade. He sponsored several student-athletes who desired a Spalding education but could not afford it. He was a big proponent for the Baltimore Catholic League and threw his support behind former Coaches Tony Martin and Mike Glick and the efforts to move the program to the MIAA A-Conference.

Steve was also a large benefactor to the Spalding golf team.  As an “unofficial” golf coach his involvement and mentorship to the program has been invaluable. He helped coordinate the annual team trip to Myrtle Beach and garnered support for the program from the local courses in the area.  Over the years he purchased two golf carts for use by the athletic department. Steve and his wife Debbie were fortunate to see all seven of their children graduate from Spalding; Annie ‘99, Richard ’02, Patrick ’03, Freddie ’04, Matthew and Marian ’06, and Max in 2010.  He and his wife reside in Severna Park.
