At the initial Connecticut High School Coaches Association executive board meeting, during the school year 1977-1978, Larry McHugh suggested initiating a Connecticut High School Coaches Association Hall of Fame. The first induction was held on March 31, 1978 at the Sheraton Park Plaza in New Haven during a noontime ceremony. The Connecticut High School Coaches Association Hall of Fame committee meets each year during a May meeting to discuss and select the next CHSCA Hall of Fame class. The CHSCA holds its induction ceremony in November at the Aqua Turf Club in Southington. The inaugural inductees were:
