Gene Fisch

Enshrined 2011

Was he the greatest basketball play in Parochial League history? That question can be debated but never answered to the satisfaction of all. But, Gene Fisch’s ball-handling wizardry was legendary. In 1959, and only a sophomore, Fisch, along with senior Dick Pospiech, led Adam Markowski’s Sacred Heart team to its first Parochial League championship and an unblemished 21-0 record. The next two seasons Fisch led the Hearts to two regular season titles and one playoff crown. He was the league’s leading scorer despite not even measuring 6 foot tall. He was rated the best player, pound for pound, during his time in the Parochial League. Fisch went on the play collegiately at New York University.
