George Molnar is in the Lehigh Hall of Fame

Bio: Few athletes elicit such an enthusiastic response from classmates as Geza Molnar. Judged in his playing days to be of Olympic caliber in soccer, Molnar was elected to the 1946 All-America Soccer Team by the Intercolle-giate Soccer Coaches Association. He is the only known Lehigh player to have been so honored. His honors also include being named to the Intercollegiate Soccer Football Association of America First Team Southern All Star squad. He was also captain of the 1946 soccer squad.

Molnar also excelled in baseball as he was an outstanding shortstop in 1946 and 1947. In 1947 he was elected captain of the baseball team and presented with the Nannie Lamberton Wilbur baseball cup.

Molnar also excelled academically as he was elected in 1946 to Lehigh's Alpha-Alpha Chapter of Phi Alpha Theta for "conspicuous attainments and scholarship" in the field of history. In 1947 he was elected to Cyanide: Lehigh's Leadership Honor Society of the junior class.

Molnar is an accomplished poet having published "Shortstop" in 1988. After graduating from Lehigh he attended law school at Georgetown and began practicing in Maryland where he is a member of the Montgomery County and District of Columbia Bar Associations.

"It's an honor for me, my teammates and coaches. I never thought this would happen," says Molnar. "When I played we were coming back from World War II and striving for a diploma. Athletics was something I did for enjoyment. It feels great to be recognized now for my athletic accomplishments." Molnar currently resides in Silver Spring, Maryland with his wife Jay Coria.
