Two-time All-American Richard Leavitt ’76, who, after leaving the College, would go on to play for the New York Giants, has been honored for his athletic achievements by his other alma mater, Hebron Academy in Maine. The boarding school inducted Leavitt into its Athletic Hall of Fame Saturday, Oct. 6, 2012.
Leavitt played football for Edward Little High School in Auburn, Hebron Academy and the College (though he was also the 1975 NCAA champion in the shot put) hooked up with the Giants at the end of 1976 season, during which he was active for two games as a long-snapper. He suffered season-ending knee injuries in preseason in both 1977 and 1978, and eventually got into coaching — serving as football coach for Brunswick High School from 1995 to 2004. Leavitt is currently the assistant football coach at Lewiston High School.
