The Louisiana American Italian Sports Hall of Fame was formed to recognize the American Italians of Louisiana who, for generations, have participated and excelled in sports. Each year an annual induction gala honors one national sports figure and inducts outstanding Louisiana athletes, both past and present, into the Hall of Fame. Proceeds benefit the American Italian Cultural Center, and scholarships for college-bound high school seniors excelling in academics and athletics.
