Inducted February, 1983
Sports can be likened to the proverbial iceberg, with only the tip showing. But it takes a strong support system to make a school district sports program function, and dedicated, knowledgeable people are required in that effort. none exemplifies the roles more than Danny O'Neill. For many years, he was coordinator of sports and recreation for the Kern High School District. The Bakersfield native was a sportswriter before joining the district. He also has been Bakersfield College sports publicist for the past 10 years. He is a walking storehouse of local sports information, a diehard Notre Dame football fan and has a large and valuable collection of sports literature and memorabilia.
