Eddie is a three time All-American at Pepperdine. He was the Southern
California Intercollegiate Champion in 1977/78/80.
Friendly, articulate and eminently likeable, Edwards is one of those
players with considerable talent who still lacks the one big win to catapult
him into the game's upper echelon. He stands as one of the few players Jimmy
Connors has ever complimented. Connors, after beating Eddie on Centre court
at 1983 Wimbledon, cited him as a "good player".
