Mike Lanos was one of the first true "stars" of men's soccer at Carleton University. He used blazing speed and amazing game sense to help his team win many games. Mike's job was to create offence and he played that role extremely well. In the varsity Ravens’ second year of existence (1984), he led the team to the Ontario championship title and ultimately the CIAU (Canadian Interuniversity Sport) national final. At the time it was Carleton University's first CIAU final in any sport. Mike Lanos was a 4 time OUA All-Star and a CIAU All Canadian. Lanos was a selfless ‘team first” player who excelled in all four years he played, was awarded numerous individual honours and would go on to found an alumni chapter in 1992, which still exists and has more than 300 members. Each year, the Mike Lanos Award is presented to the current varsity player who best exemplifies the spirit of Mike's qualities - leadership, selflessness, and hard work. He is still involved in coaching at a high level and is currently the technical director of Gloucester Soccer.
