As a tribute to Doherty, Sachem athletes will wear camouflage uniforms in a number of athletic events through Feb. 17. Doherty, class of 1988, was a fierce competitor on the wrestling mat and tennis court at Winchester.

He will join Joe Bellino (27), Joe Murphy (22), and Chris Mitropoulos (44) on the “Wall of Honor” in the Winchester High fieldhouse.

T-shirts, sweatshirts, and jerseys will be on sale to support the Doherty Foundation.
