Lee Oldenburg

Class of 1982

This 1982 graduate is one of the finest all-around athletes of the decade. A two-time Dual County League All-star in football and basketball, Lee proved that size does not matter. Time and again his heart grew ten sizes and was the emotional catalyst of his team's frequent successes. Lee is the all-time interception leader in AB football annals with sixteen swipes. He was a feared punt return specialist and caught every pass that was thrown his way. Coach Ray Gallant, who has coached AB football for the past 26 years, holds Lee as the standard to which all defensive backs are measured. On the hardwood, Lee is one of the finest guards to have played at Acton Boxboro. He could shoot, control a game and defend to the N-th degree. Lee was captain of his football and basketball teams. Harvard University and the Ivy League was the recipient of Lee's athletic prowess at the inter-collegiate level. Lee was a two-year starter for Joe Restic's Crimson eleven, distinguishing himself once again as a top defensive player. Lee's most memorable AB moment was the 1981 9-1 AB DCL Football Champions whose attitude defined winning, sportsmanship and success beyond the playing field. Lee also recalls a defeat which the AB hoop teams bowed to eventual State Champion Wakefield in a courageous effort. This insight tells you of the character of the man. Lee lives in Canton, Massachusetts with three children. Lee joins his older brother Gary as the second Oldenburg inducted into the AB Hall of Fame.
