CC's Gambucci headed to Colorado Sports Hall of Fame

The accolades for a remarkable sporting life continue for Colorado College great Andy Gambucci.

The Colorado Springs resident is one of six inductees entering the Colorado Sports Hall of Fame on April 17, 2014.

To be included in such a class was humbling to Gambucci, 84, a three-sport star for the Tigers in the early 1950s. A standout center fielder in baseball, he made his lasting mark in football and ice hockey.
"It's one of the biggest moments in my sports life," he said. "Coming from a small school says a lot about the athletic department at that time."

He is in the CC Athletics Hall of Fame twice - individually in 2004 and in 1998 as a member of the 1950 NCAA ice hockey championship team. He entered the Colorado Springs Sports Hall of Fame in 2010.

In football, he was the Rocky Mountain Conference's Most Valuable Player after running for a school-record 16 touchdowns during his 1952 senior season.
