About Tom Reilly

Tom Reilly - known to his friends as "T3" - was the middle segment of three generations that either attended or supported Holy Cross High School for decades. 

Mr. Reilly graduated from Holy Cross High School with the Class of 1976. He played baseball and football for the Lancers, and noted in his yearbook quote that his proudest high school moment was being part of the "first Holy Cross Baseball championship team in the Freedom Division". His love for Holy Cross was evident as he wore his 1976 class ring for many years after graduation.

Rivaling Holy Cross was his love for the University of Notre Dame. Classmates still tell stories of his green van with the Fighting Irish logo in the school parking lot, or cruising around town. Mr. Reilly was a long-time coach of youth sports, and much of his time and generosity was also spent supporting Catholic education.
