PHOENIXVILLE, Pa. – Former University of Delaware men's tennis player Jeff Harrison, a four-time letter winner for the Blue Hens, will be inducted into the United States Tennis Association Middle States Hall of Fame, as announced by the organization recently.

Harrison, a native of Wilmington, Del. and 1993 UD graduate, was an exceptional player during his time as a Blue Hen as the team posted a record of 47-14 during his four seasons.

The 1993 team captain is currently 14th in all-time career singles and doubles wins. Harrison won the 1992-1993 North Atlantic Conference Doubles title and was also named the 1990 and 1993 UD Alumni Association/Alexander J. Taylor Team MVP.

Although currently employed as a Business Development Officer at Stewart Title, Harrison has a life-long dedication for tennis serving the game, and the University of Delaware and USTA, on all levels.

This includes serving as the USTA Delaware District President, Middle States Section President and USTA Chair of Delegates.

Joining Harrison as part of the USTA Middle States 2017 Hall of Fame Class will be David Anthony Abrams, Connie Ebert, and Julian Krinsky.

The 23rd Middle States Hall of Fame Induction Diner and Auction will take place on Thursday, Oct. 19 at River Crest Country Club with proceeds benefiting the Middle States Tennis Patrons' Foundation, which supports junior tennis programs in Middle States and furthers tennis education objectives through the Section.
