|Title:||Class of 1984|
Don Lutz, your multiple talents earned you distinction as a member of the basketball, soccer, and baseball teams at WPI. Your spirit, dedication and abilities carried you to 10 varsity letters and the Outstanding Athlete Award in 1967.
As point-guard on the basketball team, your consistent scoring ability and floor leadership earned you All-New England honors, and you were elected co-captain of the squad in your senior year. With 1,212 career points, you presently rank fifth among the all-time leading scorers at WPI.
The superb aptitude you displayed on the basketball court was also present on the soccer field, where you were the star goaltender despite never playing soccer before your sophomore year at WPI. A winner of two letters, you played an integral role in the Engineers' undefeated 10-0-1 season in 1965.
In baseball, your offensive and defensive capabilities were phenomenal. You earned four baseball letters and are classified as one of the greatest players ever to set foot upon the WPI diamond. A defensive stalwart in center field, your powerful arm and tremendous range made you the catalyst of the Engineer defense.
Always quiet and humble, yet always a leader, you served as class vice-president and president of the WPI Athletic Association and were elected to Skull. Your exceptional involvement in all facets of campus life enhanced your position as a leader both on and off the playing field.
Don Lutz, it is with great pride and distinction that tonight we honor you with your induction as a member of the WPI Athletic Hall of Fame.
