John Quigg

John Quigg was one of the key players on the powerful Leopards' football teams of the late 1930's. Considered to be one of the best centers in Lafayette history, he was a starter on the 1937 championship eleven and on the `38 and '39 teams. He received All-American mention for his gridiron exploits.


Coach E.E. "Hook" Mylin considered Quigg to be "the best center he ever coached." Quigg also earned three letters in varsity wrestling for Lafayette. After graduating, Quigg became the first Maroon gridder to participate in an Eastern Collegiate All- Star football game, competing against the New York Giants of the NFL. He signed a professional football contract with Boston of the American Football League, but chose a teaching and coaching position at Tenafly, NJ, High School.

Lafayette Athletics, as a partner in the mission of the College, provides an incredibly effective learning experience for student-athletes through competitive NCAA Division I athletics. Lafayette sponsors 23 varsity sports with more than 600 student-athletes.
