Don Croatti to Receive Donlon Award Loyal Alumnus, Longtime Supporter Recognized for Dedication and Service Don Croatti, a past presi- dent of the Boston College Varsity Club and recognized as the father of the Boston College Gridiron Club, has been selected to receive the 2011 Reverend William J. Donlon Special Achieve- ment Award, according to a joint announcement by Director of Athletics Gene DeFilippo and Varsity Club President Chris Conley. The Donlon Award was established in 1999 to honor individuals who have dem- onstrated extraordinary dedication and performed exceptional service to Bos- ton College athletics. The award, given periodically, honors Father William d. "Bill" Donlon for his 60 years of service and dedica- tion to the Boston College. Croatti, a 1960 Boston College graduate, will re- ceive the award at a recep- tion on Friday night, Sep- tember 16, 2011, and then feted again during the fol- lowing day's Boston College- Duke football game. He will be joined by this year's Varsity Club Hall of Fame class at halftime of the foot- ball game. Croatti served as the presi- dent of the Boston College Varsity Club in 2002 and 2003. He also served as chair- man of the Varsity Club Hall of Fame's selection commit- tee. The Varsity Club is the school's athletic alumni or- ganization. It is the only club that represents all varsity student-athletes who have had the distinct honor of wearing the maroon and gold. The Southborough, Massa- chusetts, resident directed the Boston College Touch- down Club for several years and in 1999, it was his ini- tiative that brought together that club with the BC foot- ball alumni group to form the Boston College Gridiron Club. To this day, Croatti retains the title of the club's President Emeritus. Croatti is a native of Framingham, Massachu- setts.
