Horace Saylor

A four-sport athlete as a freshman at Lafayette, Horace "Tod" Saylor went on to start at center and linebacker for the football team. Coach Hook Mylin said Saylor was one of the best players he ever coached.


As a sophomore, "Tod" was the starting center on the basketball team and the starting catcher for the baseball team. After enlisting it the U.S. Army in 1943, Saylor returned to College Hill to captain the football team in 1947. He went on to earn a tryout with the Cleveland Browns.

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.
