Christopher K. "Chris" Cameron is in the Lehigh Hall of Fame

Bio: A two-sport star, Chris Cameron excelled in both lacrosse and soccer during his time at Lehigh, and received countless awards for his athletic prowess.

Chris is just a great kid from a great family and he had outstanding athletic ability, says John McCloskey, who coached Cameron in both lacrosse and soccer. Chris was really a throw back type of kid in that he could have played any sport that he wanted to. He was an all-around outstanding kid. McCloskey concludes, This is pretty great to see someone like Chris be inducted into the Hall of Fame here at Lehigh, you dont get the opportunity to be around someone like him all too often.

Cameron had success in both sports he participated in while at Lehigh, but he was particularly well-recognized in lacrosse, as he led the nation in scoring twice in his career, while also being an All-American. As a freshman, Cameron was ranked second in the nation in scoring with 40 goals and 53 assists. Camerons list of accolades also includes being selected to play in the North-South All-Star game, garnering East Coast Conference All-Star honors and serving as captain twice during his Lehigh career.

During his senior season, Cameron was the sixth best assist man in the nation, and he ended his career with 121 goals and 186 assists, giving him 307 points. Those stellar numbers broke the East Coast Conference records for both career assists and points.

Lacrosse wasnt the only sport in which Cameron excelled at Lehigh. He also enjoyed success on the soccer field, as he tied for the team lead in goals (8) and led the team in assists (6) as a senior. Cameron helped lead Lehigh to a 13-5-2 record in that senior season while serving as captain and being named a Regional All-American as well. For all of his efforts on the field, Cameron was named the Top Male Athlete at Lehigh in 1988-89.

This is a great honor to be inducted into the Lehigh Athletics Hall of Fame, Cameron said. This is something that Lehigh University really got into when Joe Sterrett took over as Director of Athletics and it has grown into something very special for everyone involved.
Cameron continues, I am happy to go into the Hall of Fame and to receive all of this wonderful recognition from past teammates, coaches and friends that made my time at Lehigh such a valuable and enjoyable experience. I must also thank my coach John McCloskey who helped build the program throughout my time at Lehigh. He was always there and a real constant throughout the seasons.

Following his graduation from Lehigh, Cameron played some professional lacrosse with the Boston Blazers and also the Brine Lacrosse Club, before heading into employment as a sporting goods sales representative. Following his stint with Brine as the Director of Field Communications, Cameron worked for the Rupp Company in Florida, where he was a sales representative. Cameron, who majored in finance at Lehigh, then worked for South Mountain Asset Management in New Hampshire where he traded equities for a private hedge fund. Currently, Cameron is the President of Vantage Point Benefits, where he serves as an employee benefits consultant. Camerons sister Tara 95, was also a star at Lehigh twice garnering All-Patriot League selections in soccer.

Cameron and his wife Judy reside in Bedford, New Hampshire, with their three children Kristin, Brian and Sean.
