ATHLETICS

Ahepans Cheer-on 2014
Scholar-Athlete Awardee Anas

Rob Rasmussen

A delegation of 20 Ahepans from New Haven Chapter 98 attended
the Quinnipiac University Men's Hockey game versus Rensselaer
(RPI) in Hamden, Connecticut, to cheer on Sam Anas, forward
for the top-ranked Quinnipiac hockey team. Anas, a dynamic
star, was the recipient of the 2014 William Chirgotis Outstanding
Scholar-Athlete Award at the Supreme Convention, New Orleans.
Anas did not disappoint. To the delight of the brothers, Anas
scored a game-tying goal with nine seconds left to salvage a 2-2
tie for Quinnipiac, saving its Number 1 national ranking.
Head of Athletic Awards Gregory J. Stamos remarked, "It was
a wonderful evening for us to cheer on and relish the success of
such a fine young Greek American." Stamos added that many in
attendance were new to hockey, but they will now follow Sam's
career-all the way to the National Hockey League.
Anas is the son of Past Canadian President Peter Anas.

Anas scores for QU (#1) to tie the game vs RPI (#16) with only nine
seconds left.

Dikeou First Greek
American Inducted into
Colorado Sports HoF
Brother John Dikeou, of George P. Dikeou Chapter 385,
Denver, Colo., was the first Greek American to be inducted
into the Colorado Sports
Hall of Fame during its 50th
Annual Induction & Awards
Banquet, April 2, 2015. The
CSHOF honors those individuals who merit recognition and distinction for their
exploits, accomplishments
and leadership in sports
and athletic endeavors in
the state of Colorado.
As owner of the Denver
Bears and Denver Zephyrs
AAA baseball teams, he played a key role in bringing Major
League Baseball to Denver. For more than a decade, he
lobbied, negotiated and legislated to bring MLB to Denver.
In 1990, Dikeou helped draft legislation to charge a
1/10th of one-cent sales tax through a proposed stadium
authority to fund construction of what now is Coors Field.
The sales tax initiative passed, bringing seven metropolitan counties together to build the stadium.
Born in Denver, after his parents emigrated from
Paleohorian, Greece, Dikeou was All-State in football and
track at Denver East High School in the 1950s. He graduated from the University of Colorado and went on to own
Dikeou Realty, a Denver-Based commercial real estate
company and largest private landowner in downtown
Denver. John's success culminated in his family being
named to the "Forbes 400 Wealthiest People in America"
for eight consecutive years.
Dikeou was instrumental in organizing the football
scholarship program at CU. During the past 30 years, he
has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to provide
scholarships to student athletes. He has been a generous
contributor to the 100 Club that helps widows of firemen
and policemen. He has received numerous civic awards,
his most prized being the Outstanding Service to Youth
Award in 1985 given by the Boy Scouts of America.
