Guy Claveloux — a standout sweeper, and a member of Staples’ state championship teams of 1981 and ’82 — joined his Union College 1986 team, as they were inducted into his alma mater’s Hall of Fame.
The squad was cited as a “team of distinction.” Their 4-year record was 47-9-5, and they were credited with “the rebirth of the school’s men’s soccer program.”
Guy served as co-captain of the ’86 Dutchmen team. He was a 3-year MVP at Union; a college All-American in 1986, and a 2-time All-New York State selection.
At Staples Guy co-captained the ’82 side. He was All-State 2nd team (1982), and a 2-time All-FCIAC first team choice.
Guy — who is now managing director and leader of North American Marine Practice for Marsh, Inc. — has had 2 daughters play for Staples.
His favorite Wrecker moment remains teammate Rob Stone’s 40-yard shot with 7 minutes remaining in the 1982 state championship match. The defender’s goal — the only 1 of his career — beat Ridgefield, 1-0.
