The Westchester Sports Hall of Fame will honor this year’s class of inductees on Wednesday night. Among them is someone who has been discussed around here lately as fans reminesce about some of the area’s all-time great.
No doubt Edgemont’s Matt Bernstein belongs on that list. The bruising back was a star for the Panthers, leading them to three straight state titles. He then became a standout fullback during a four-year career with Wisconsin.
My colleague, Brian Heyman (@bheyman99), wrote about Bernstein, now the head coach at Edgemont, and what made him “a man among boys” on the football field.
