George Chandick

Induction Year: 1996 Sport: Basketball

An outstanding 18-year post-college career as a player and player-coach in the Greater Cleveland Basketball League set the tone for a lifetime of devotion and service to athletics in the Greater Cleveland area. A lengthy list of achievements and honors as coach, official, team sponsor and participant, embraces a variety of sports form youth baseball and track and field to horseshoes. Duties as Council President and later Mayor of Seven Hills, and as a teacher of elementary physical education for 38 years in the Cleveland Public School System enhanced, rather than stemmed, the tide of his activities on behalf of young athletes.
