It is with great pleasure we announce the induction of Doug Holowink, class of 1979 as a member of the Saint Edward’s School Athletic Hall of Fame.
Doug came to Saint Edward’s School in the seventh grade and even as a Middle Schooler had an immediate impact on the Athletic program. He was a three sport athlete, participating in football, basketball, and baseball. A pounding fullback and punishing linebacker in football, Doug helped lead the ‘78 Pirates to the then best record since the sport began in 1973. He was twice named Jai Alai Athlete of the Week as well as earning All State honors his senior year. In Basketball Doug dominated the boards as a power forward also being named Athlete of the Week and was a formidable hitter and pitcher in baseball. Doug was voted the MVP of all three sports his senior year and it is no wonder he was named Most Athletic in the Class of ‘79
After graduating from Saint Edward’s, Doug went on to Yale University where, as a member of the Yale football team, he played on 2 Ivy League Championship teams.
After Yale, he married his wife Hillary and they are blessed with 2 children. Currently, they are now very proud grandparents of 4 grandchildren. Both Hillary and Doug are very active in Christian Ministries. Professionally, Doug is the Executive Vice President of the real estate firm CBRE in Manhattan.
This induction is very special in that it is important for the Saint Edward’s Athletic Department to be able to recognize athletes from the early years of interscholastic athletics at Saint Edward’s School, when traditions and legacies were first built. Doug definitely is one worthy of such recognition. Congratulations Doug and welcome to the Saint Edward’s School Athletic Hall of Fame.
