Inducted October 20, 2018
BRUCE BALDWIN ’76
Lacrosse, Football, & Basketball
Bruce Baldwin earned seven varsity letters in three different sports in his time at Curley. While he also competed at the varsity level in football and basketball, it was on the lacrosse field where Baldwin would make the biggest impact. He was a member of the school’s 1976 MSA “B” Conference championship squad and his play as a midfielder that season earned him All-Metro and All-MSA first team honors. He would go on to be named the Fr. Julian “Athlete of the Year” and in 1986 was selected to Curley’s Silver Anniversary lacrosse team.
Baldwin accepted a full athletic scholarship to play lacrosse at the University of Maryland-Baltimore County (UMBC). As a Retriever, he appeared in two NCAA DII national championship games. In 1980, Baldwin captained the UMBC national championship squad. Switching to a defenseman, his play on the field earned him several post-season honors including 1st Team All-American and National Defensemen of the Year for Division II. Baldwin was also selected to participate in the 1980 North/South All-Star game. He would go on to compete for several of the nation’s top club lacrosse teams after college.
JACK HERZOG ’02
Football & Baseball
Jack Herzog’s high school athletic career at Curley not only includes individual accolades but also team success as he was a part of two MIAA “B” Conference football championship teams (2000 & 2001) and an “A” Conference baseball championship (2001). A four-year, two-way varsity starter on the gridiron, Herzog recorded 65 tackles, five sacks, and 2 fumble recoveries as a senior. He earned All-Conference, All-City/County, All-State, and All-Metro honors over his four years in the football program. He was selected to the Super 22 and Baltimore Touchdown Club’s All-Star teams. Herzog was also a standout on the baseball diamond for Coach Al Frank. A three-year starter, he would garner All-MIAA, All-City/County and All-Metro honors. His senior year, Herzog served as a team captain for both the football and baseball squads.
The 6-foot-4, 250-pound lineman continued to excel on the football field at the Virginia Military Institute (VMI). He was a four-year starter as a defensive lineman and was named an All-South Conference Scholar-Athlete. In 2006, Herzog was a team captain and was also voted the Keydets Defensive Most Valuable Player.
TOM JASPER ’66
Basketball & Football
Tom Jasper scored in double figures in every contest for Curley during the 1965-66 basketball campaign on his way to averaging 18.9 points per game. The team captain would earn All-Catholic League honors for his prolific scoring that helped the Friars upset both Calvert Hall and Loyola that season. He was the recipient of the Dave Clark Memorial Award given to the team’s outstanding player. Jasper also competed for the varsity football team his senior year and was named an honorable mention All-Catholic league selection. His outstanding play for both teams earned him the “Athlete of the Year” award in 1966.
Curley’s Athletic Hall of Fame isn’t the only one to have Jasper as a member. In 2008 he received this same honor from The College of William & Mary. In two seasons with the Tribe, Jasper scored 982 points in just 54 career games. His average of 18.2 points per game ranks him 5th all-time at W&M. As a co-captain his senior year, Jasper led the team in scoring (19.2 ppg), rebounding (8.6 rpg), and field goal percentage (.426). For his efforts, he was named Co-Southern Conference Player of the Year and earned 1st team All Southern Conference honors.
GREG LOFTUS ’95
Soccer, Basketball, Baseball, & Tennis
It wouldn’t be a stretch to call Greg Loftus an all-around athlete. Loftus excelled in four sports during his four-year athletic career at Curley. He is most recognized for his contributions to the soccer program having been a three-year starter under legendary coach Pep Perrella. He was a member of the 1993 MSA “A” Conference championship team and earned All-City/County, All-Metro, and All-State recognition during his tenure. In 1994 he captained the Friars. The winter season saw Loftus transition to the basketball court where he was a two-year starter on varsity. In the spring on the tennis court, Loftus earned MSA singles championships in the MSA “B” Conference as a sophomore and junior and the team captured the team title in 1994. The spring of his senior year, the 1995 Fr. Julian “Athlete of the Year” took a break from tennis and took to baseball where he led Al Frank’s squad in home runs. Loftus was named the Ideal Curley Man of the Year in 1995 for his outstanding qualities of leadership, scholarship, character, and service.
Loftus continued his soccer career in college at Mount Saint Mary’s. He was a four-year starter under Mark Mettrick. Loftus currently serves as the head Junior Varsity Coach at his alma mater and is actively involved in coaching at the club level with the Baltimore Union Soccer Club.
Craig Tillman served as Curley’s first varsity lacrosse coach. In his ten years at the helm the Friars won 72 games and captured two MSA championships (1969 & 1971). Under his leadership, nearly 50 players went on to compete in lacrosse at the collegiate level. Although job responsibilities forced Tillman to resign from his head coach position, he continued to assist the Curley Lax program. Former players created the A. Craig Tillman award for lacrosse in the late 1970’s and the award is still given to Curley’s top lacrosse player each season.
Tillman went on to officiate lacrosse at the high school, college, and professional level for 30 years. This included evaluating NCAA college officials, being a part of five NCAA Final Fours, and serving as an indoor lacrosse official in the Major Indoor Lacrosse League. He also is the recipient of numerous awards for his service to lacrosse and officiating that include the Andrew Kirkpatrick Memorial Award, The Bernie Ulman Award, and the Charles B. Ellinger Award.
