Eddie Dwyer's Corner


Eddie Dwyer was a member of the Cleveland Plain Dealer’s sports department for more than 36 years before retiring on December 31, 2006.

In his ‘semi-retirement’, Dwyer covered Saint Ignatius’s sports teams for the school’s website in his blog titled, “Eddie Dwyer’s Corner.” Dwyer also wrote for the Saint Ignatius Magazine and is a special contributor to the school’s newspaper, The Eye.

In March 2000, Dwyer was inducted into the Ohio Prep Sports Writers Hall of Fame. During his successful and lengthy career, he was the recipient of the Golden Deeds Award from Greater Cleveland’s three major coaching associations - baseball, basketball and football. 

Dwyer also received the highly regarded Northeastern Ohio Chapter, National Football Foundation Ohio Sportswriter of the Year for 2012-2013, an award he takes great pride in.

On December 4, 2016, Eddie Dwyer announced his decision to retire as the school's chief sportswriter, in order "to get myself back in order physically and devote more time to my family, especially my wonderful grandkids."

Dwyer's contributions to Saint Ignatius Athletics will not soon be forgotten. You can find Dwyer's wonderful thank you letter here
