  Glenn Eramo
1966 - Football & Hockey



It was like something out of a storybook. Stoneham High School junior Glenn Eramo was slated to start as quarterback in the biggest football game of the season: the Thanksgiving Day match up with arch-rival Reading High. The athletic Eramo was too small to play football and instead ran cross-country during his freshman and sophomore seasons. He threw for 189 yards and a pair of touchdowns in an upset Spartan win, and shared the Marty Jordan Trophy for outstanding Thanksgiving Game performance with fellow SHS Hall of Fame running back Greg Wright.

The two-time hockey All-Star and second-team Boston Globe and Boston Herald All-Scholastic team member made most of his time on the frozen sheet as well — helping lead a series of powerhouse Spartan hockey teams.

Eramo used his lightning-fast skating and quick-wristed release to lead the league with 18 goals and 24 assists for 42 points his senior season, narrowly edging Melrose High skater and current UNH hockey coach Dick Umile for the league scoring title.

Eramo was the third leading scorer in the state of Massachusetts his senior year and finished behind only State Senator Bob Havern of Arlington and former Red Sox hitting coach Richie Hebner of Norwood. “Those were some great times skating with lifelong friends against some very good competition around Massachusetts,” said Eramo, who played for fellow Hall of Fame inductee Dick Burns during his junior and senior season, “The finals would be in the Garden and that place would be packed with everyone from all of the surrounding towns."

Eramo went on to play two seasons at Northeastern University after high school and played with many local hockey greats on the Concord Eastern Olympics in the legendary New England League.

Eramo stills calls the town of Stoneham home and owns Colony Travel with his wife of 32 years, Heidi.
