Harvard Athletic Achievements

Ed became Harvard’s second national champion by winning the 35-pound weight throw in 1970 and simultaneously achieved All-American recognition. His poignant victory-stand protest of the NCAA’s treatment of Yale’s Jack Langer stands as a testament to his spirit and sense of justice. This determination helped carry him to a career as a three-time All-Ivy athlete and a two-time Heptagonal indoor champion.
