Bill Lingelbach played for legendary soccer coach Duglas Stewart in the early 1920s, and still is among the all-time leading goal scorers in Pennsylvania history.

           

A member of early All-America teams in 1923 and 1924, Lingelbach is third in school history with 41 goals scored in his varsity career, and tied for first with 20 goals scored during one season (1924).  He scored five goals in a game against Cornell that season.

           

Pennsylvania won the 1923 and 1924 Intercollegiate Soccer Championships and Lingelbach was cited by the University of Pennsylvania Record as a driving force in the Quakers’ success.  “Bill Lingelbach, through the combination of such characteristics as a positive personality, clean sportsmanship and untiring efforts, has been one of the outstanding figures in this wonderful machine.”
