Jeff Kauffman

Class of 1984

Jeff was inducted into the Athletic Hall of Fame in 2003. His citation is below:

Jeff Kauffman developed his lacrosse skills at Loyola High School in Baltimore, where he developed a reputation as a top offensive player. By his senior year he led his team in goals scored and was second on the team in total points.

At Washington College he demonstrated a growing expertise as an offensive player, and made significant contributions to teams that consistently saw NCAA post-season action. Under the coaching expertise of Bryan Matthews and Terry Corcoran, Jeff scored 151 goals and had 87 assists during his college career. A special point of pride is the defeat of the U.S. Naval Academy in 1982. Jeff was first team All-American that year, and again in 1983.

He accrued several other honors. In the 1982 Hero’s Tournament in Baltimore, he was the outstanding attackman. In 1983, the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association named him the Jack Turnbull Outstanding Division III Attack Player in the Nation, while the Baltimore Sun included him as the only Division III attack player on the Division I–Division III All-American Team. Representing Washington College in the annual North/South All-Star Game, he scored two goals and one assist. The College named Jeff Most Valuable Lacrosse Player in both 1982 and 1983.

At graduation he received the Athletic Council Award presented to the student who has done the most for Washington College athletics. His post-college lacrosse experience includes one year with the Chesapeake Lacrosse Club, where he led that team in goals.

Washington College considers it an honor and privilege to induct Jeff Kauffman into the Washington College Athletic Hall of Fame on this fourth day of October, 2003.
