Geoffrey Kurtzman

Geoffrey was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1999. His citation is below:

Geoff Kurtzman will always be remembered as one of the most outstanding collegiate basketball players to have ever represented Washington College on the hard court.

The statistics that he accumulated while participating in varsity basketball for four years are outstanding. Kurtzman was largely responsible for what success Washington College enjoyed in basketball during the years from 1973 to 1977. Although he scored 1,296 points during these four years, his 941 rebounds, the second highest mark in WC history, are what contributed so much. He averaged 14.7 points and 10.7 rebounds per game over four years. His personal highest scoring game of 36 points came against UMBC during the 1973-1974 season.

Kurtzman was selected to the Middle Atlantic Southeast Division All-Conference team in 1976. He was selected as an All-American Jewish Athlete in 1977. He played professionally in Israel for Elitzur Tel Aviv in 1977-1978.

Married to Laura Chase, Class of 1983, he has two children, Kevin and Tommy and serves as President of the Kurtzman Business Forms, Inc. He also has served as a sportscaster/color commentator on Cablevision.

Washington College is proud and honored to induct Geoffrey Kurtzman into its Athletic Hall of Fame on this second day of October, 1999.
