Jack Lambert ’00 to Be Inducted into UMB Athletics Hall of Fame

BOSTON, Mass. – The University of Massachusetts Boston Department of Athletics has announced that former UMass Boston three-sport athlete Jack Lambert ’00 will be inducted into the Athletics Hall of Fame as a member of the 2012 induction class.

One of only a handful of athletes to ever compete on three different teams in the same year, Lambert will be one of 10 honorees who will be enshrined this October in the university’s annual ceremony, which is also celebrating its 10th anniversary.

While attending UMass Boston, Lambert was a starter and captain on the football, men’s basketball, and baseball teams.

With the football program, Lambert served as the Beacons starting quarterback.  Lambert still holds the single season (434 yards) and single game (76 yards) rushing records by a quarterback.  His single game mark also stands as the longest run in program history by any player.  He also holds the record for most rushing touchdowns in a game by a quarterback with three.

In his senior season, Lambert led the baseball team to their largest win total to date with 19 victories, and also played a major role in the Beacons’ first-ever trip to the Little East Conference tournament.  A .328 life-time hitter, Lambert appeared in a total of 96 games and totaled 82 hits. 

As a member of the basketball team, Lambert played two seasons for head coach Charlie Titus, and appeared in a total of 46 games, including back-to-back appearances in the Little East Conference tournament.  Described by Titus as the hardest working player he had ever coached, Lambert was one of the Beacons top playmakers on both sides of the hardwood.

Following his graduation, Lambert remained close to his alma mater, serving on multiple committees as well as participating in department events including the annual golf outing. 

Currently Lambert is the President of Jet Access Aviation, a worldwide private jet company, as well as Limo Access Group, a worldwide ground transportation company.  Both businesses are located in Palm Beach, Florida, where he also resides with Kelly and their two sons Jackson and Jett.
