Dan Pucci '98

Sport Played: Soccer

Year Inducted: 2009 (12th induction class)

Accomplishments: A four-year letter-winner, Pucci enjoyed one the finest soccer careers in Babson history. A four-time All-Conference selection, he won Constitution Athletic Conference Rookie of the Year honors in 1994 and the league's Player of the Year award in 1996. He also was an All-New England selection in each of his four seasons, and in 1997 he was the only Division III athlete in the region and one of only six in the country to earn Umbro Senior All-Star status. Pucci was named NSCAA All-America First Team as a junior and Second Team as a senior, making him one of only seven players in program history to earn multiple All-America selections. With 29 goals and 34 assists in 73 games, Pucci graduated as Babson's all-time leading scorer with 92 career points. Today, he remains the program's single-season (15 in 1997) and career assist leader, he is third on the all-time points list, and he is one of only five men in team history to have earned All-America First Team recognition. With Pucci leading the way, the Beavers improved from 16-12-4 in his first two seasons to 26-10-6 in his final two years, culminating with the program's first ECAC New England Championship in 1997.
