Bethlehem, PA – The Lehigh football program held its annual postseason banquet on Saturday evening at Iacocca Hall on Lehigh’s Mountaintop Campus to look back at the 2004 season and honor members of that team, which captured a share of the Patriot League championship. Over 300 players, parents, alumni, friends, coaches and support staff were on hand for the event.
Several Lehigh program awards were handed out for individual accomplishments from the 2004 season, in addition to the recognizing of certain players and coaches who received awards from national agencies.
Senior Jon Guynes took home the program’s highest honor as he received the Scholar-Athlete award. Given to the student-athlete who best combines success in both academics and athletics, Guynes boasts a 3.0 grade point average as a political science major, while registering 24 tackles and recording an interception as a linebacker in 2004.
Senior offensive lineman Justin Terry was the recipient of the Archibald Johnston Cup, given to the most valuable player in the Lehigh program. An All-Patriot League first team selection, Terry, a team captain, started every game for the third straight season – this year, playing three positions on the offensive line.
Senior tight end Adam Bergen earned the James P. McConologue Award given to the player that is "all football." Bergen, who received several national accolades for his strong play in 2004, led all Division I-AA tight ends in receptions.
Senior defensive lineman Tom Alfsen was named the Alexander G. Hahalis award winner as the team’s best lineman, offensive or defensive. An all-league defensive end, Alfsen earned All-America recognition from several national organizations after registering 59 tackles and ten sacks last season.
The Barry Fetterman award, given to the player or players who best exemplify loyalty, dedication, and unselfishness was awarded to seniors Karrie Ford and Rob Sandie. Both Ford, a captain and defensive back, and Sandie, an offensive lineman, fought through injuries and played integral roles in the team’s success.
Junior defensive back Kaloma Cardwell, a second team All-League selection, received the John C. Whitehead “Big LU” award given to the player that combines leadership and performance. Cardwell, a captain, recorded three interceptions and finished second on the team in total tackles despite missing five games due to injury.
The annual Lehigh football banquet was made possible by the Lehigh Athletics Partnership program, whose mission is to promote interest in Lehigh Athletics, to encourage and provide financial support to the program and to enhance relations with all former participants, fans, friends, and parents of Lehigh student-athletes.
