David Reeves

D. Leroy Reeves, a graduate manager of athletics at Lafayette form 1921 through 1946, was the driving force behind the development of intercollegiate and intramural athletics at the College.

It was Reeves' direction, according to one early newspaper account, which "helped lay the foundation of the well-balanced athletic program now in progress at the College...and it was shortly after he took the college post that Lafayette enjoyed its most successful period in major sports." He was largely responsible for the expansion of the athletic plant at the institution, with the construction of Alumni Memorial Gymnasium and Fisher Field shortly after he began his tenure. During Reeves' 25 years as an athletic administrator, Lafayette produced four undefeated football teams.

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.
