Williamsport, PA - Cameron Coleman is the 67th person associated with the football program to earn a spot in the athletics hall of fame. From Bethlehem, Pa., Coleman came to Lycoming after his career at Liberty High School was cut short due to a knee injury as a senior.

The injury took him off the radar of many Division I and II schools and landed him at Lycoming to nothing but the Warriors’ gain, as he helped the Warriors to four straight Middle Atlantic Conference titles. During his four years on the team, the Warriors never lost a regular-season game and reached the NCAA playoffs four times, including making an appearance in the national title game in 1997.

He finished his career as a two-time First Team All-MAC selection and also was a four-year starter. As a senior, he capped his career with a seven-sack season that landed him a spot on the AFCA All-American Team. During the season, he picked up the first two Team of the Week honors in school history and also set a then-school record for tackles for loss with 24.

He was also a two-time MAC Defensive Player of the Week. After the season, he participated in the Aztec Bowl in Mexico City. Coleman’s first career honors came in 1998, when he was named a Griese Preseason All-American. A member of the MAC Century Team, Coleman is second in school history with 55 tackles for loss and eighth with 22 career sacks.

Coleman is currently a child care worker in Lehigh County.
