Phillip Delphos was one of WPI's outstanding three-sport athletes. He earned three varsity letters in basketball and two in track while also playing on the soccer team for two seasons.
His top-notch leadership qualities earned him the respect of his teammates, who selected him captain of the basketball team for the 1924-25 season. His outstanding play during that year earned him the basketball team's most valuable player award. He played as a forward and held the distinction of playing every position in basketball.
Perhaps best known for his passing skills, Delphos showed a knack for scoring as was displayed in a victory over St. Stevens when he tossed in 13 of the team's 26 points.
In track, Delphos was a top sprinter and a consistent point scorer for the Engineers. In one 1925 meet against Trinity, he captured first placed in the 100-yard dash and took second in the 200-yard dash.
WPI is proud to honor Phillip Delphos for his sincere commitment to athletics at WPI by inducting himm posthumously into the WPI Athletic Hall of Fame.
