Athletic Hall of Fame: 2009 Graduate Dylan Drury


Dylan Drury played both basketball and baseball during his time at Notre Dame.


He played basketball as a freshman and into the next season, but suffered an eye injury halfway through his sophomore year — thus ending his basketball career.


Drury played baseball all four years, and lettered for each. He contributed to all-state teams his junior and senior years. They placed third in 2008 and won the state championship in 2009. He was an all-district champion his sophomore year in 2007.


One significant moment in his high school career stood out to Drury:


“We got beat pretty badly my junior year at the state playoffs. We set some state records on how badly we played,” said Drury. “But we came back the next year victorious.”


He went on to play baseball for one year at West Virginia University, and transferred to Parkland College in Champaign, Illinois, where he played baseball for another year. He worked for Drury Hotels for several years before starting school at Southeast Missouri State University. He is currently working on a degree in business administration.
