Description 2013 Drew Shiller Sports Hall of Fame Plaque. Wood and acrylic plaque commemorating Drew Shiller of Burlingame High School and Stanford University who was inducted into the Peninsula Sports Hall of Fame on June 11, 2013. Plaque includes image of Shiller and a brief biography: "Arguably the most honored prep athlete in the modern history of San Mateo County, he was named California's high school Male Athlete of the Year in 2005, and for good reason. His exploits as a three-sport star at Burlingame became the stuff of local legend. He led both his football and baseball teams to dramatic Central Coast Section championships, but, eventually, basketball wound up being his best sport. He took his hard court skills to the University of San Francisco, then to Stanford University. After graduating from the latter institution, he went on to pursue a career in broadcasting." Plaque and induction was sponsored by The San Mateo County/Silicon Valley Convention and Visitors Bureau in cooperation with San Mateo County Event Center and Media Sponsor The San Mateo County Times. Silver-colored plaque is mounted under acrylic onto a laminated wooden board by four decorative brass-colored screws and washers. Color image of Shiller is in the upper right hand corner and Hall of Fame logo is in the upper left corner.
