Inducted As:Coach

Jack Emmer recently retired from Army as the NCAA's all-time winningest coach with 326 career victories. He is one of only two coaches to have guided three teams (Cortland, Washington and Lee, Army) to the NCAA tournament, and he coached the 2002 U.S. Men's Team to the International Lacrosse Federation World Championship. Three times the USILA named him a divisional coach of the year and in 2003 that organization honored him with the Howdy Meyers Man of the Year Award. Emmer was a second-team All-American defenseman at Rutgers, where he also enjoyed a stellar football career. His lacrosse peers voted him team MVP in 1967, which he concluded with an appearance in the USILA's North-South All-Star Game. Three US Lacrosse chapters - Charlottesville (Va.), Hudson Valley (N.Y.) and Long Island Metro (N.Y.) - have already inducted him into their respective halls of fame.
