Godfrey was a basketball standout for Catawba from 1988-92. He was SAC Player of the Year in 1992 and MVP of the SAC tournament in 1991.
A three-time All-SAC honoree, Godfrey earned first-team honors during the 1991 and 1992 seasons.
He was a prolific scorer and rebounder for Catawba and led the Indians to the finals of the 1991 tournament as a No. 5 seed.
Godfrey ranks fourth all-time in the Catawba record books with 1,673 points and is eighth with 829 rebounds.
His 9.5 rebounds per game is No. 2 all-time in the SAC and he ranks eighth with 19.0 points per game for his career.
Godfrey is one of just five players in Catawba history to score 600 points in a season. He had 607 during the 1991-92 season.
