Ed  Hudak

A 1993 Lafayette graduate, Hudak is the only player in Lafayette football history to be recognized with All-American honors by four different organizations. Hudak completed his decorated career on the offensive line in 1992, as he led the Leopards to an 8-3 record and the Patriot League Championship. Hudak garnered first-team All-American honors from both Kodak (coaches) and Football Gazette, while the Associated Press named him to the second team. For the second straight season, The Sports Network placed Hudak on the honorable mention listing.

A three-year letterwinner, Hudak helped Lafayette lead the Patriot League in total offense (435.9 yards per game) and scoring offense (34.7 points per game) in 1992. The Leopards led the league in rushing offense in both his junior and senior seasons, rolling up 179.6 yards on the ground in 1991 and 196.8 yards per game in 1992.

Following his departure from College Hill, Hudak obtained a professional engineering license. He has spent multiple years with Merck & Co., an organization that discovers, develops, manufactures, and markets a broad range of products to improve human and animal health. Hudak has climbed the ladder and currently holds the title of Senior Research Engineer, responsible for compound management in support of high throughput screening.
