Cornelius Van Duyn was a giant of a man in his era and star on the track team for his ability in the hammer throw. Van Duyn played no athletics at Syracuse until his sophomore season when he joined the track team. He would quickly set the school record for the hammer throw.. He was invited to join the football team his senior season, and was outstanding at the left guard. He would be a reserve center for the basketball team later that year.

Van Duyn would graduate from Syracuse with a liberal arts degree in 1904. He would be an instructor at Syracuse for a year as an assistant professor of geology, before going on to be a science instructor at the Kentucky Military Institute.
