Golf (Inducted 2004)



Scott R. Lutz was a four-time letterwinner in golf for the Colonials between 1993 and '96. He made an immediate impact on the Colonials golf program as a freshman, so much so that he earned team MVP honors in 1993. He finished in the top five in three of his first four tournaments and became the first Colonials golfer to qualify for the ECAC Championship.

In addition to also winning MVP again as a junior (in '95), he provided exceptional team leadership as captain of the squad in both his junior and senior years. His leadership also was reflected in activities off the golf course. He served as president of his fraternity, Delta Tau Delta, in 1995-96 as was a team representative on GW Athletics' Student-Athlete Advisory Council.

Lutz was solid both on the golf links and in the classroom. In addition to his golf prowess, he earned Atlantic 10 Academic All-Conference honors as a senior and later that spring received the Dept. of Athletics' most prestigious individual accolade for a men's athlete, the J. Dallas Shirley Outstanding Senior Male Athlete Award, which is reflective of athletic, academic and community service achievements.

A native of Malvern, Pa., Lutz was the third GW golfer to be elected to the University's Athletic Hall of Fame and the first since 1978. The two previous inductees were Jay Randolph '56, inducted in 1978, and Tad Lindner '51, a 1973 inductee.

Following graduation from GW with a bachelor's degree in finance, Lutz enrolled in law school at Widener University from which he graduated in 1999. Lutz and his wife, the former Nicole Thomas, live in Leesburg, Va.
