SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Former Susquehanna football and track
& field athlete Cory Mabry ’91 has been
selected as one of 36 inductees into the inaugural Mid-Atlantic
Conference (MAC) Hall of Fame.
The Hall of Fame is an initiative of MAC 100, a program celebrating the 100 years of the conference. The Hall of Fame was established to recognize student-athletes, coaches, administration, faculty or staff from the MAC who demonstrated success in athletics, academics and in the community. This year’s 36 inductees represent 25 schools and 13 sports.
Mabry was a two-time All-American and three-time All-MAC player as a member of the Crusader football squad. He holds the school record in career interceptions (26) and interception return yards (400). In 1988, he led the nation and tied the single-season school record with 10 interceptions.
As a track & field athlete, he was a three-time MAC champion in the triple jump and qualified for the NCAA championships as both a junior and senior, earning All-America status as a junior. In addition to his success in the triple jump, Mabry also placed in the 110-meter hurdles and 400-meter relay at a MAC championship meet.
Mabry was inducted into the SU Sports Hall of Fame in 2000.
