Pete Hollis had one of the finest careers of any Quaker lacrosse player ever and he capped it off by being named First Team All American for his performance during the 1977 season.  When he had played his final game at Franklin Field, the senior caption left as the all-time career leader in points scored (173) and assists (94), and tied the single-season record for goals in a season (34) and points scored in a season (75).

           

Nearly 20 years after his last game as a Quaker, Hollis’ mark of 75 points in a season is still a record and both his career assists record (94) and total points scored mark (173) are still both second on the all-time lists.

           

Hollis was a three-time all-Ivy League selection and was selected to play in the North-South game and was also named Co-Most Outstanding Player with teammate and fellow Hall of Fame Inductee Mike Page.

           

During Hollis’ playing career the Quakers were 21-12 overall and 12-6 in the Ivy League (one of the best three-year periods in the history of Quaker lacrosse).  As a senior, Hollis was awarded the Class of 1915 Award as that member of the senior class who, “most closely approaches the ideal University of Pennsylvania student-athlete.”
