Times Union Celebrates 1954 NCAA Championship Team

The Albany Times Union ran a series of articles about this weekend's Alumni Hockey and Big Red Freakout festivities in today's edition. Chief among them are two articles about the 1954 NCAA Championship Team which is being honored on the 50th anniversary of their achievements.

  • RPI glory frozen in time tells the story of how 82-year old coach Ned Harkness and 11 players from the 14-member team are expected to return. The players from the 1954 team are all about 70 years old.

  • After RPI tells what each member of the team has done since they left Troy.

The "After RPI" article needs a bit of correction. John Magadini '55 who now lives in Far Hills, NJ, was a member of the 1954 NCAA Championship Hockey Team and the 1952 NCAA Championship Lacrosse Team. He is the head coach of the boys' varsity hockey team at The Pingry School in Martinsville, NJ.
