Rick Shannon
Rick Shannon starred in both soccer and baseball of the Dolphins from 1969-73.

One of JU soccer’s all-time greats, he holds the single-season record for goals scored and the career goals record (55), and is second in career points with 132. As a sophomore in 1970, Shannon recorded the school record with 22 goals and 50 points. The team compiled a 36-15-3 record during his career, including winning a school-record 15 matches in his freshman year. Shannon was also a key player on teams that set school records for the longest win streak (14) and most goals in a match, when he helped the Dolphins score 14 against Stetson as a senior.

Also a standout in baseball, Shannon hit .372 with eight home runs in 1972 for the Dolphins baseball team. He led JU with 74 hits and 56 runs that season, and then returned as a senior to again lead the Dolphins in hits with 64. The outfielder was drafted by the Montreal Expos in 1973.
