Schuster headed for Hall of Fame at Frontier Field in Rochester

There's a spot on the Frontier Field Walk of Fame reserved for Alfred University alumnus and former Saxon football player Bill Schuster '81.

While Schuster's Saxon gridiron accomplishments were significant, it's his work as a National Football League umpire, a career that included a Super Bowl game in 2015 between the New England Patriots and the Seahawks, that earned him Hall of Fame status at the Rochester field, home of the Rochester Red Wings.

He is one of three people being honored Sunday in a special section of the Wall of Fame designated to Rochester's "sports legends," those who have "made a monumental impact on the community through their achievements in the Rochester-area sports scene.

Schuster makes his home in Livonia.
