Class of 1974
Inducted in 2004

One of the most consistent performers of the wrestling program of legendary Hall of Fame Coach George Bossi, Brian Dillon occupies a place among the mat elites of the Raiders during their long run of success.

As a sophomore (1971–1972), Brian placed 3rd in the prestigious Lowell Holiday Tournament. The young Raider then placed 1st at the Division I Northeast Sectional Championship. Brian finished his 1st full varsity season by placing 2nd at the Massachusetts State Tournament and 3rd at the New England Championships.

During his junior year (1972–1973, Brian enjoyed one of the most successful seasons in the long and storied history of Lowell Wrestling as he completed the season undefeated (36–0) on his way to winning Championships at the Lowell Holiday, Division I Northeast Sectional, Massachusetts State, and New England Tournaments in the 112-lb. weight class.

One of 3 individual State Champions on the ’72-’73 team, Brian played an instrumental role as the Red and Gray–just like Brian–completed the season undefeated, finishing the campaign 16–0 in dual meets and reigning as Team Champions at the Sectional, State, and New England Tournaments.

As a senior Brian, one of the team’s Co-Captains, wrestled in the 121-lb. weight class. After winning his 2nd consecutive Lowell Holiday Tournament and 3rd straight Division I Northeast Sectional Title, Brian placed 5th in the State Tournament as the Raiders won their 2nd consecutive Team State Championship.

In Brian’s 3 years of varsity competition, he compiled an overall personal career record of 95 wins and only 8 losses. The Red and Gray captured 3 Division I Northeast Sectional Championships (1972, 1973, 197 4), 2 Massachusetts State Championships (1973, 1974) and 1 New England Championship (1973) during that time.
