Scranton Wall comes calling for CB West's Loftus
Central Bucks West product Dan Loftus will be inducted into the University of Scranton Wall of Fame on Saturday, Jan. 25.
A basketball standout, Loftus, who graduated from Scranton in 2003, made an immediate impact on the program, moving into the starting lineup midway through his freshman year and remaining there for the remainder of his career. He was named second-team All-Freedom Conference in each of his final three seasons and finished his career with 1,266 points, 429 assists and 172 steals. He is currently 22nd in scoring, fourth in assists and sixth in steals all-time in Scranton history.
Loftus excelled in the classroom, as well, earning CoSIDA District II All-Academic honors twice (’02, ’03) along with being named the male recipient of the University of Scranton Carlesimo Award for academic and athletic excellence.
Loftus holds a degree in finance from the university, a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree from La Salle University in Philadelphia and is currently vice president for wealth management sales for Merrill Lynch. He and his wife, Ellen, a 2003 graduate of Scranton and four-year member of the Royals softball team, reside in his native Doylestown, with their two children, Claire and Danny.
