The 1992 Patriot League Player of the Year, Tom Kirchhoff '93 ranks among the top quarterbacks ever to line up under center for the Maroon and White. His 6,709 career passing yards are the third most in the 129-year history of Lafayette football and the 12th-highest total in Patriot League annals.

Kirchhoff, who was co-captain of the 1992 Patriot League Championship team, is also third in program history in career completions (510) and touchdown passes (53). His 26 touchdown passes in the 1992 campaign are the second-highest single-season total in Lafayette history. In addition to his Player of the Year nod, Kirchhoff was a semifinalist for the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award in 1992 as one of the top senior quarterbacks in the nation. A three-year starter for the Leopards, he was recognized by Lafayette as the male recipient of the 1993 Charles L. Albert '08 Award. After graduation, Kirchhoff signed a professional contract with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Kirchhoff is a third-generation owner of Cleveland Brothers Equipment Company. He and his wife, Staci, have four children: Tommy (13), Sam (11), Brynley (9) and Ty (6).

Kirchhoff is the 47th Lafayette football player to enter the Maroon Club Hall of Fame. He joins Ed Hudak '93 and Erik Marsh '95 as inducted members of the 1992 Patriot League Championship squad.
