Harvard Athletic Achievements

Harvard’s first Canadian player and a star during the bright years of 1928, 1929 and 1930. Deceptive, clever and resourceful, he was a fine playmaker and a clutch scorer. His two spectacular goals beat Yale 2-1, in 1929. The following year he scored Harvard’s second goal in a 2-2 tie with Yale before 14,000 fans at Boston Garden.
