EUGENE — Marist High School inducted its first class into its Athletic Hall of Fame this fall. The inductees were selected by a steering committee of Marist alumni, faculty and staff.

Coach Ed Hummel

In 1960, Ed Hummel arrived at St. Francis High School and served as a one-man athletic department, coaching football, basketball and baseball. Those duties were divided when the school became Marist in 1968, with Hummel at the helm as head coach of baseball and serving as an assistant coach for basketball and football. Along with coaching, Hummel taught a variety of subjects: American history, world history, accounting, personal finance, physical education, government and math.

His teaching and coaching career spanned 56 years, and his contributions and dedication to Marist are unprecedented. Even in retirement and despite numerous health issues, Hummel was on the sideline for every Marist football practice and game.

A 2015 celebration held in his honor featured the unveiling of the Ed Hummel Sports Complex sign, which now stands at Marist’s southern entrance of campus. On June 2, 2017, Hummel died at the age of 86.
