John "Jack" Attwood is among the very best defensive soccer players in the history of the sport at Saint Michael's.  Despite playing during one of the Purple Knights' least successful spans (the Knights were 11-28-4 during his four-year career), Jack was praised in the various media publications of that time for his tremendous abilities at fullback.  He was a three-year starter, and served as team captain in his junior and senior seasons.  He was named the team's Most Valuable Player in 1974 and 1975.  Jack was also a standout in the classroom and in 1976 was named Academic All-America by the College Sports Information Directors of America -- the first student-athlete in Saint Michael's College history to receive this honor.
