Baltimore, Md. - Former Loyola Greyhound standout Brian Kroneberger will be one of 11 new members inducted into the Greater Baltimore Chapter of US Lacrosse Hall of Fame. Kroneberger, a three-time All-America and current Loyola Hall of Fame member, joins the US Lacrosse Hall of Fame in a ceremony on January 28, 2006.
"I'm a Baltimore kid," says Kroneberger. "Being recognized by the Baltimore Community is certainly and honor, just as it was an honor to be recognized by the Loyola Community when I entered their Hall of Fame."
Kroneberger captained the 1990 Loyola squad that advanced to the national championship game against Syracuse. His 38 goals that season ranks among Loyola's Top-10 single season scorers while his career point total of 136 places him ninth in Loyola's record books.
"Brian is one of the toughest competitors I ever played with," says Loyola Coach Charley Toomey. "He was our go-to guy and was one of the very best. Success has followed him everywhere he has gone. Brian is a true competitor and great friend. I'm very happy for him."
Kroneberger earned All-America honors in 1988, 1989 and 1990 and was a first-round draft pick of the Baltimore Thunder after earning his finance degree from Loyola. He played eight years of professional lacrosse, working for Ferris Baker Watts much of that time.
"My proudest moment is still being a captain of the 1990 national runner-up team at Loyola," says Kroneberger. "I love Loyola and love Baltimore and was fortunate enough to play here professionally after graduation."
Kroneberger is currently a financial commentator for WBAL Radio. His "Money Report" can be heard Monday through Saturday at 8:07a.m. and he is a guest host with Dave Durian at 6:55 a.m. on Thursdays. Kroneberger also serves as a financial commentator for WBAL-TV.
