DeWall to be inducted into Waterloo Hall of Fame

Hobart College Football Offensive Coordinator Kevin DeWall ’00 will be inducted into the Waterloo Athletic Hall of Fame on May 24. A 1996 graduate of Waterloo High School, DeWall earned a total of 10 varsity letters playing football, basketball, and lacrosse for the Indians. As a senior, DeWall was named Waterloo’s Male Athlete of the Year, and received the Army Reserve National Scholarship as well as the Tom Coughlin Award. He was a four-year starter for the lacrosse team, earning first-team all-league honors three times, and All-American accolades as a senior. DeWall also captained the Indians’ football and basketball teams as a junior and senior. He led the football team to back-to-back undefeated seasons and league championships, and as a senior he was named the offensive MVP and played in the Eddie Meath All-Star Game. DeWall was a two-time all-league pick on both the gridiron and the hardwood, and played in the Ronald McDonald House Greater Rochester Basketball All-Star Game. DeWall went on to enjoy a successful athletic career at Hobart. As an attackman for the Division I lacrosse team, he helped the Statesmen to two NCAA Tournament berths and the 2000 Patriot League Championship. He also led the defense as a free safety on the football team. After graduating with a bachelor’s degree in biology (pre-med) and education, DeWall joined the Statesmen football staff as an assistant coach, and is in his eighth year on the sidelines, and fifth as the team’s offensive coordinator. Since taking over the offense, DeWall’s charges have broken many rushing, passing, and scoring records, and have led the team to four-straight NCAA Tournament appearances and three-straight Liberty League titles. DeWall is one of four to be inducted into the Hall of Fame on May 24 at Abigail’s Restaurant. The ceremony will begin with a cocktail hour at 6 p.m. Tickets are $25 per person, and can be purchased at the Waterloo High School main office.
