Jim Lyddy '63 & Tom Lyddy '67
Jim Lyddy '63
The 6-foot, 170-pound guard has the distinction of being the school’s first All-State selection in basketball. At the time of his graduation, Lyddy was Prep’s all-time leading scorer with 1,308 points and was named to a pair of All-MBIAC first teams. He was also a two-time All-MBIAC selection in baseball. Lyddy played college basketball at Georgetown, where he captained the Hoyas his senior season.
Tom Lyddy '67
Another multi-sport standout, Lyddy played football, basketball and baseball at Prep, but his prowess on the gridiron made him stand out. The late end/defensive lineman was named All-MBIAC, All-State and Catholic All-American his senior season. He received a football scholarship to Maryland, but a severe knee injury curtailed a promising career. He transferred to Fairfield, where he starred in baseball before graduating in 1972.
