Matthew Lux '70
four-year starter for the Grove City men's soccer team from 1966 to 1969, Matt
Lux capped a decade of Wolverine dominance by earning Second Team All-America
honors at fullback after his senior season.
Throughout the 1960s, the Wolverines earned national acclaim as one of the premier program's in the region. That continued during Lux's career as Grove City compiled a 29-10-2 overall record while continually playing one of the nation's most difficult schedules.
The Upper Darby, Pa., product became the lone rookie starter on the 1966 squad that finished with a 7-1-1 overall record. With Lux helping anchor Grove City's defense, the Wolverines compiled a 13-7-1 record over the 1967 and 1968 seasons under head coach Cliff Wettig.
In 1968, Matt earned the Bill Buchanan Memorial Award, given to the team's top junior/third-year player. The next year, Lux served as co- captain and led Grove City to a 9-2 overall record. The nine victories tied Grove City's single-season win record.
His teammates selected him as the team's Most Valuable Player for the 1969 season. Matt received All-Pennsylvania-New Jersey-Delaware honors before becoming the fourth All-American in program history.
Although he graduated as one of the most decorated players in program history, Matt feels that the awards he received belong to his teammates because soccer is a team sport.
The College inducted Matt into its Men's Soccer Hall of Fame in 2001 as part of the inaugural class. He graduated with a bachelor's degree in business administration in 1970 and has spent his career in investment management.
