Trinity High School 2012 Hall of Fame Induction included the 1955 team that went 12-0 and won a WPIAL championship. Coached by the late Henry Reihner, the Hillers won the Section II team title with five individual champions: and two runners-up. Roland Taggart and Bill Gallo each won PIAA gold medals and Ralph Littleberry and Veryl Long each took home silver medals.
Three other individuals were inducted in the wrestling category: Kevin Holley, Ron Junko and Scotty Miller.

Holley, who was also inducted for football, was a three-time letterwinner, a WPIAL runner-up, PIAA runner-up and named Outstanding Wrestling in the Pittsburgh Wrestling Classic in his senior season. He played football at Purdue University and signed with the New England Patriots. An injury ended his NFL career.

Junko was a state champion for Trinity in 1967, a PIAA silver medalist, two-time WPIAL champion and had a successful coaching career with Trinity, McGuffey and Canon-McMillan. He competed for the University of Toledo and qualified for the U.S. Olympic Trials.

Miller pinned his way through the 1970 PIAA Championships, becoming only the fifth wrestler in state history to do so at the time. He also won a PIAA silver medal, was a two-time WPIAL champion and was a key cog on the Hillers' WPIAL championship team.
