|Title:||Class of 2007|
Ed is a Worcester State College Lancer through and through. He is considered to be one of the early pioneers in athletics on Chandler Street as he was a member of the early Worcester State baseball teams in the late 1940's. Not only did Ed receive his undergraduate degree from Worcester State but he is a "Double-Lancer" as he also holds a masters degree from the college in education.
But where his mark was really made at Worcester State was as a coach and contributor to the athletics department. Ed coached the tennis teams (men's and women's) for over 25 years from 1978 through 2003. Ed took over coaching duties at Worcester State from fellow Athletic Hall of Famer Margaret "Peg" Nugent.
Ed was a well-liked and respected member of the community as he led the Lancer tennis program through many years when tennis facilities or lack thereof, was a major hurdle.
Professionally, Ed was a teacher in Worcester Public Schools for 38 years. He was a former member of the Worcester Tennis Club and taught tennis in Worcester's adult education programs. It is with great pleasure that we induct Ed Titus into the Worcester State College Athletic Hall of Fame.
