HOF - Gernard.png

Raider outfielder Ryan Gernard certainly left his mark on the already storied baseball program at 1901 Severn Avenue. He planted himself in the lineup as a sophomore in 1995 and never looked back. Gernard was not only a 3-year starter, but he was also a 3-time All-District and All Metro player. His best season was his last as a Raider as he made the 1997 Louisiana All-State squad while helping lead Rummel to the State Championship with a win over Catholic League rival Jesuit in the finals. It was the third time the Raiders beat the Blue Jays that season. Ryan also earned a spot on both the 1996 & 1997 LHSAA All-Tournament teams and All-Legion teams. He hit over .400 in both his junior & senior seasons and belted 8 home runs during the Raiders 1997 run to the State Championship. Gernard’s performance didn’t go unnoticed, as his play as a Raider earned him a scholarship to Meridian Community College where he competed in the JUCO World Series. His play at Meridian didn’t go unnoticed, either, as Ryan was awarded a baseball scholarship to the University of West Alabama, playing for the Tigers in 2000 & 2001.

HOF - Klein.png

We’re not 100% sure if former Archbishop Rummel swimmer Adam Klein’s list of accolades is quite as long as “War & Peace,” but we’re certain it’s more interesting. Klein first made his mark on the water for the Raider Swim Team as a sophomore in 2005 and never stopped kicking. That season, he not only took State in the 100M Breaststroke, but he also walked away with the LHSAA’s Division I ‘Outstanding Swimmer of The Meet’ award, and he was just warming up. While he didn’t actually swim at the State Meet as a junior, Adam was good enough to be invited to the National Select Training Camp at the Olympic Training Facility in Colorado Springs, Colorado, which happened to take place the same weekend at State. Klein made it worth the wait when he returned to represent the Raiders at the 2007 State Meet. There he captured his second State Championship in as many tries in the 100M Breaststroke while adding another State Championship, this time in the 200M Individual Medley. He capped off the 2007 swim year by joining the USA National Team and garnering a Bronze Medal at the Junior Pan Pacific Championships in Maui, Hawaii. Klein’s performance as a Raider earned him a ticket to the University of Auburn, where he swam for the Tigers, including his 2009 junior season when they won the NCAA Men’s Swimming and Diving Championships. It was the 8th National Championship for Auburn and Klein more than did his part. His time as an Auburn Swimmer spanned 4 years and his impressive list of accomplishments included: 4 SEC team championships 1 NCAA team championship 10 NCAA All-American designations NCAA championship individual finishes – (2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th) NCAA champion 400 medley relay Former NCAA record holder - 400 medley relay. Former US Open record holder - 400 medley relay. Individual SEC Champion: Relay SEC Champion Former Auburn individual record holder (2x – 100M and 200M Breaststroke events) Current Auburn relay record holder (400M medley relay) After his career at Auburn was over, Adam continued to not only compete, but excel, as he represented Team USA on 3 separate occasions, including the 2009 World Championships, the 2010 World Championships and the 2011 World University Games. Klein also competed in the Olympic Trials in 2008 and 2012, where he finished 11th out of 120+ swimmers.

HOF - Roth.png

Coach Jay Roth didn’t just ascend to the top of the Archbishop Rummel High School head football coach’s record book…He rewrote it. A four-year starter at Quarterback for the Raiders as a player, Roth led the Raiders to their first ever undefeated season, going 10-0 in 1980. He returned to his Alma Mater as Head Football Coach in 1995 and left a legacy that will be hard pressed to challenge. Roth’s teams made the playoffs an incredible 23 of the 24 years he was in charge. He coached the 2009 squad to the program’s first ever appearance in the State Championship game, where they fell to West Monroe. He wasn’t done. Roth returned to the Superdome with his undefeated 2012 team and won the school’s first ever football State Championship, beating Barbe of Lake Charles in a convincing fashion, 35-21. The win gave the Raiders the 5A State Title while putting the finishing touches on a 14-0 record for Rummel’s first ever perfect season. His Raiders went back-to-back, returning to The Dome in 2013 to win The State Title again by besting C.E. Byrd of Shreveport, 23-22. In 2015, Roth again coached the Raiders to the State Finals, falling to Catholic of Baton Rouge on a FG on the game’s final play. The Raiders won an impressive 12 Catholic League Championships during his tenure and finished the regular season undefeated 7 times. He was named The Catholic League’s Coach of the Year a record 12 times. Along with the State Championships, Roth’s teams made it to the State Semifinals 10 times and posted a record 42 playoff victories while he was at the helm. His accolades include being named the Catholic League’s District Coach of The Year 12 times, Louisiana State Coach of The Year 2 times, and twice being named Sugar Bowl Coach of The Year. Fifteen of Roth’s teams finished the regular season ranked in the Louisiana Sports Writers Association’s Top 10. Roth’s overall record as Head Coach of the Raiders was 228-62, resulting in a career winning percentage of 79%...Good enough for 8th best all-time amongst Louisiana High School football coaches who made the legendary 200-win club. He is the winningest coach in the history of the New Orleans Catholic League. The winning culture he fostered for Archbishop Rummel football continues to this day.

HOF - Schaefer.png

Archbishop Rummel Basketball legend Billy Schaefer finished an exceptional career for the Raider roundballers in 1976 by leading his team to the playoffs as Team Co-Captain and leading scorer. Schaefer was a 3-year letterman and capped off his career by etching his name in the Raider annals as the school’s 3rd All-Time leading scorer. Billy was as clutch as he was competitive, sinking a 25-footer with 3 seconds left on the clock to beat Jesuit in 1976. Against another Catholic League rival, eventual State Runner-up De La Salle, Schaefer sank 2 free throws in the waning seconds to give the Raiders 1 one-point victory. But The Raider Faithful may recall another ‘Schaefer Moment’ even more so…Following a successful full court press, he dove and corralled a loose ball under the Bonnabel Bruins’ basket. Schaefer then found himself sitting on the gym floor w/the ball. Not wanting to risk a “walking” violation by attempting to get up and noticing the Bruin defenders covering his Raider teammates to block any pass he may attempt, Schaefer let loose with a shot while sitting on his derriere and, to the amazement of all in attendance, he sank it! Billy was as good in the classroom as he was on the court as he was named Salutatorian of his Rummel Graduating class. His commitment to academic excellence played a part in his decision to forego basketball scholarship offers from Stephen F. Austin State University and Trinity University while accepting an academic scholarship to Tulane University, where he graduated with a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering. Schaefer boasts a long list of postseason accolades, headlined by his selection to the New Orleans All-Metro Team following his senior year. He was the Catholic League’s second leader scorer that season. Billy was all-district in 1975 & 1976, made the CYO Tournament All-Star Team in 1976, and was selected MVP of his Raider squads after both his Junior & Senior seasons. He also finished 1976 as the single season record holder in Free Throw percentage by hitting on an impressive 90% of his attempts.
