Former Harvard lacrosse coach Bob Scalise predicted Peter Predun would be an outstanding offensive threat when he recruited the Harborfields lacrosse stud.

"When Peter came here he had the shots and the moves needed to be good," Scalise told the Harvard Crimson in 1980, "but since then he has added the little unsung things to make himself great. It is rare to find a major scoring threat, like Peter, so capable of playing defense. The balance of playing skills he employs makes him one of the best middies in the game now."

Predun helped bring Harvard back to national prominence with his scoring flair and the team won two Ivy titles under his guidance. The Crimson was a respectable team on the lacrosse field during his four-year tenure.

He finished his collegiate career as one of the highest scorers in the history of the prestigious university. Today, he is fourth all-time in points with 169 and ninth all-time in assists with 71. He also had 98 career goals and is the only Harvard lacrosse player to earn All-America honors four times.

Before he played college lacrosse, Predun was one of Suffolk County's best athletes, winning the Enners Award in 1976. He was All-League, All-County, All-America and "All-Universe," as The Crimson jokingly reported when he first signed to play at the Ivy League school.

"The individual awards are flattering but they are pale in comparison to accomplishing something major as a unit," Predun told The Crimson.

He was always a team-first player.
