Local man is Hall of Famer

May 24, 2009

David Blitz recently attended the 20th annual induction ceremony dinner for the Suffolk Sports Hall of Fame in Patchogue, N.Y., where he was inducted in 1992, the year before moving to Hagerstown.

Blitz, a Special Olympian, was awarded many medals for his swimming as well as several other awards and he continues to do so in Maryland.

He is pictured with Gerry Cooney, the former heavyweight boxer, who was inducted in 2005. They ran together in the Great Cow Harbor 10-K Run on Shelter Island in the 1980s.
