Chadala, Anderson and Paul named to 2015 Sheridan Hall of Fame Induction class
The Sheridan Athletics and Recreation Department proudly announced the 2015 Sheridan Bruins Hall of Fame induction class of John Chadala (men’s hockey, 1985-86), Scott Anderson (men’s hockey, 1988-90) and Bill Paul (men’s football, 1978-81).
"This group is especially important to me," said Sheridan athletic director Jim Flack. "Scott Anderson and John Chadala are products of the Streetsville Minor Hockey Association where I played as a youngster and I had the pleasure of being their teammate and friend. It will be a proud day for our community when they are enshrined for their contributions to the history of Sheridan Bruin Hockey."
During his two seasons in Double-Blue, Chadala was a standout offensive performer, sitting seventh on the school’s all-time scoring list after amassing 113 points in his 43 career games. Thanks to his performance — 61 points on on 23 goals and 38 assists in 1985-86 and 52 points on 26 goals and 26 assists in 1986-87 — he was named an OCAA All-Star in each of his two seasons. He was an assistant captain in each of his two seasons in addition to being named the team’s co-MVP in 1986 and Sheridan’s Male Athlete of the year in 1987. He graduated from Sheridan's Microcomputer Management program.
Like Chadala, Anderson was also a two-time OCAA All-Star and an offensive powerhouse, piling up 99 points (47 goals and 52 assists) in 47 career games. During his two seasons, the Bruins compiled a record of 35-12-1, falling in the OCAA best of five championship series in 1989 and a hard-fought semi-final series in 1990 that featured five games, two of them going to overtime. In 1990 he became the second Sheridan player to be named an All-Canadian and was also given the team’s Coaches Award. He graduated from Sheridan's Heavy Equipment Technician program.
The third recipient, Bill Paul, a Sheridan Business Administration - Marketing grad, was a standout fullback on the football team from 1978-81.“Bill was and is very important to the history of the Double-Blue,” said Flack. “Not only was he an outstanding student-athlete, but he has been such an outstanding ambassador for Sheridan since his graduation in 1981.” In his freshman campaign, he was a member of the Bruin team that won the final of six consecutive OCFL league championships. During his final season, Paul put together a stellar year and was named Sheridan’s male athlete of the year after rushing for 409 yards and eight touchdowns. Over the course of his career, he carried the ball 163 times for 780 yards (a 4.8 yards per carry average) and scored 11 touchdowns.
The inductees will be enshrined on October 3 in Oakville at the Trafalgar Gymnasium as part of Sheridan’s Annual Homecoming event. It promises to be an eventful weekend, as there will be an official salute to the 2014 National Champion Men’s Soccer team where they will presented with their national championship rings.
