A member of the Boston State men’s basketball and golf teams, Craig M. Lindgren '70 made some of the most valuable contributions in the history of the men’s basketball program.
The driving force behind the team’s three consecutive New England State College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) tournament appearances, Lindgren could play any position on the court and was ranked amongst the program’s top rebounders when he graduated. A three-year letter winner, Lindgren led the Warriors to the inaugural Codfish Bowl tournament title in 1970, and for his efforts was named the tournament’s Most Valuable Player. It was also in that year that Lindgren earned his first All-Conference selection from the NESCAC.
A model student-athlete, Lindgren also stood out in the classroom. A member of the President’s and Dean’s List, the North Reading, Massachusetts, native graduated from Boston State with a 3.7 GPA and was named a Boston State Scholar-Athlete as a senior.
On the golf course, Lindgren played at tournament’s all over the country throughout his high school and college careers. From 1974–1984, Lindgren competed as a professional and served as the assistant pro to Bob Crowley at Pine Brook Country Club in Weston.
Lindgren recently retired from Carlson Commercial Real Estate after having spent a career in real estate on the North Shore of Boston. He currently resides in Georgetown, Alabama.
