Robert Eramo's accomplishments in ice hockey and baseball for four years are well documented. He not only gained individual recognition but provided inspiration and leadership to teammates. Bob led the hockey team in winning the ECAC title in the 1973-1974 and 1976-1977 hockey seasons. His outstanding leadership and dedication helped Bob secure the captain position during the 1976-1977 championship season.
He played more minutes as a goaltender than any other hockey
goalie in Lancer history. Bob logged 3,659 minutes or more than 61
hours guarding the net and had 1,856 career saves. He was a key
player during the College's most memorable hockey years when the
team won 53 games and clinched its only ECAC championships. The
team won the 1973-1974 championship game with an 11-5 victory over
Wesleyan University and captured the 1976-1977 crown with an
emotional 7- 6 overtime win over Framingham State College.
Under Bob's guidance, the team finished the 1975-1976 season as the ECAC runner-up and reached the tournament's semifinals in the 1974-1975 season. The team also competed in the ECAC tournament four years straight, a rare feat! Additionally, Bob was an outstanding baseball shortstop and third baseman. He compiled a .291 career batting average.
Bob transferred his athletic skills and sports knowledge to the coaching ranks and worked at Assumption College and WSC as a goal tending instructor and coach.
Today, Bob is the director of sales at Anixter Company in Methuen.
