Tommy Mulroy will be inducted into the Rockland County Sports Hall of Fame Saturday, April 22, he announced on Facebook Saturday.
“For my friends on Facebook that don’t know #rocklandcounty, it is where I grew up and kicked my first ball,” Mulroy said on Facebook. “It’s a county just north of New York City on the other side of the Tappan Zee Bridge from Westchester. I still have family and friends there and always will. It’s a great honor. Thank you Rockland! #soccer.”
Born in the Bronx and a product of the Blau-Weiss Gottschee S.C. club, the 60-year-old Mulroy has been involved in soccer for virtually his entire life. He attended Rampapo High School before earning National Junior College All-American honors at Ulster County Community College in 1974 and 1975. He also was inducted into the NJCAA Hall of Fame in 1993.
He played for the Miami Toros (North American Soccer League), Fort Lauderdale Strikers (NASL indoors), the Cleveland Cobras and New York Eagles (American Soccer League) and the Pittsburgh Spirit, Hartford Hellions, New York Arrows and New York Express (Major Indoor Soccer League) and Louisville Thunder (American Indoor Soccer Association).
