Lou “Allen” Brominski

About This Inductee

Swoyersville, PA

One of the famous “Four Horsemen” of the Wyoming Seminary football teams of the late 1920’s Brominski was known as a triple treat on offense and a hard hitter on defense. He also showed his athletic versatility in basketball, base-ball and track. During his senior year, he was awarded the John Laming Cup given to the school’s outstanding athlete. Following his career at Seminary, Brominski continued his athletic career at New York University. However, after his freshman year, it was dis-covered that Brominski had played semi-pro baseball under the name “Lou Allen” and he was declared ineligible. He left NYU and began playing baseball for Hanover of the Blue Ridge League. He was then signed by the Wilkes-Barre Barons of the New York-Penn League as a shortstop. In 1930, Brominski was invited to the New York Giants’ training camp. He never played for the Major League but spent many years playing for the Giants’ Minor League system. Lou died in 1969 and is survived by his wife, the former Bina Pallini, sons Edward & Donald, and grandchildren.
