Tom McElroy '80

- Came to Boston College as a midfielder but switched to the goalkeeper position as a freshman. He eventually set school records for most games played (43), most shutouts in a season (10), most career shutouts (20), and lowest career goals-against average (1.05).

- Although he was ill during his senior season, he continued to play. His final appearance was a 3-1 ECAC playoff victory, the Eagles' first soccer championship.

- An endowed scholarship that carries his name and rekindles his memory will always keep Tom McElroy a part of the Boston College soccer program.

- Inducted into the Boston College Varsity Club Athletic Hall of Fame in 1987.
