Local quartet named to Syracuse Sports Hall of Fame

Dee, Donnelly, Kotz, Newell part of Class of 2012

Then, at Syracuse University, Kotz earned All-American status three more times, and his MVP performance in the 1983 NCAA championship game led the Orangemen to a memorable come-from-behind victory over Johns Hopkins. Two more NCAA finals appearances followed in 1984 and '85, as Kotz got 129 goals and 205 points during his SU tenure.

And the winning didn't stop there, as Kotz played on back-to-back Major Indoor Lacrosse League championship teams in 1989 and '90 with the Philadelphia Wings and, at the World Games, helped Team USA to consecutive gold medals in 1986 and 1990.

Amid all that, Kotz got an MBA at the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School. A 2001 National Lacrosse Hall of Fame inductee, Kotz now lives in Maryland, where he's the co-founder and manager of Seneca Properties.
