George Easley pius x hall of fame

George Easley earned All-City honors in football and basketball in the inaugural year of Pius X athletics and was also named to the Class B All-State team in the Omaha World Herald.

The 1st Homecoming King in Pius X history played a major role in establishing an athletic tradition that continues to flourish over 60 years later.

Easley led the first football team in Pius X history to an 8-1 season and the first basketball team earned recognition for a series of marquee wins for the newly formed Thunderbolts.

Easley’s power and athleticism earned him a trip to South Bend, Indiana, where he played football for the Fighting Irish before graduating from Notre Dame in 1961.
