CHARLIE LINEWEAVER
Inducted 1996



A native of Northport, NY, Charlie Lineweaver played soccer at Binghamton from 1972-1976. He earned his bachelor's degree in history in 1977, and later received his master's degree in English from Brown University in 1980, and a Ph.D. in physics from University of California-Berkeley in 1994.
Lineweaver became one of the school's first two soccer All-Americans with his second-team national selection in 1974. He led Binghamton to consecutive NCAA tournament appearances in 1973 and 1974, helping the '73 squad advance to the second round of the College Division Championship - the first NCAA tournament victory in any sport.
He scored 18 and 16 goals in '73 and '74, respectively, and still holds two of the top three single-season point totals. A two-time All-SUNYAC and two-time All-New York State forward, Lineweaver scored a school-record 44 career goals in four years. His 105 career points stood as the school record for 19 years.
During his tenure, Binghamton enjoyed a winning percentage of 70%, played in post-season tournaments all four years, and won three conference championships.
Lineweaver was named Binghamton's "Athlete of the Year" in 1974-75, and was selected as the school's lone ECAC Merit Medal winner in 1977.
