Class of 1949
Inducted in 1996

Renowned for one of the greatest single game performances in the storied history of the traditional Lowell-Lawrence football series, Titus Plomaritis etched a permanent place for himself in the annals of the Red & Gray Football Program.

A three-year varsity performer for Lowell, Titus’s senior year saw the dawn of the Ray Riddick era at Lowell High. Titus was one of the key performers. As the all-purpose standout, he led the Raiders and Eastern Mass Class A in scoring with 80 points. As well as being a standout halfback, Titus was a superior place kicker, totaling 23 PATs and 1 field goal.

It was at the Lowell-Lawrence game of 1948 that the “Plomaritis Legend” was born. With a series of dazzling runs and kicks, Titus led the underdog Red & Gray, scoring all 20 Lowell points, including the game-tying TD and winning PAT with but 4 seconds remaining. The 20–19 victory concluded Lowell’s first-ever undefeated grid squad and insured its first-ever bowl appearance in Jackson, Mississippi.

Titus was a consensus All-Scholastic selection during this outstanding season.

Titus attended Boston University on a football scholarship. During his tenure as a Terrier, he was a Two-Way starter and frequently played the entire game because of his versatility as a kicker and kick returner.
