Frank Stanczak

Frank Stanczak `49 was a three-sport letterwinner at Lafayette in baseball, basketball and football, and the 30th multi-sport inductee in the Hall of Fame. Stanczak's greatest accomplishments came on the gridiron where he was moved from fullback to quarterback in the middle of the 1946 season.

As a quarterback in the vaunted "T" formation he went on to lead the Leopards in rushing in 1947 on a team that went 6-3, including a victory over archrival Lehigh. In fact, Stanczak never lost to Lehigh in football, going a perfect 4-0. Stanczak was a winner on the baseball diamond as well. Lafayette complied a 53-33 record in his four years on College Hill, and Stanczak played third base and catcher for a Leopard baseball team that advanced to the 1948 NCAA Eastern Finals with playoff wins over West Virginia and national powers Illinois and North Carolina. Stanczak resides in nearby Palmer Township.

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.
