Harvard Athletic Achievements

Jim, a standout quarterback, was Harvard’s first ever Ivy League Player of the Year. He led the Crimson to a 7-2 season in 1973, when he set school records for passing yards in a game (291, vs. Pennsylvania), season (1,391) and a career (2,097). He still ranks in the top 10 in each of those categories. One of his records still stands—as his 27 completions in the game vs. Penn has never been toped. Jim was also an All-Ivy selection in baseball his senior year, and received the 1973 Swede Nelson National Sportsman Award.
