Pitcher-Shortstop. Dominant Forward. A three-year letterman in all three sporting disciplines Bobby brought a quiet intensity to every sporting challenge. To say baseball was his lead sport might be argumentative given his diversity to being a multi-talented athlete, but let the record speak for itself. A First Team D.C.L.

In football, Bobby quarterbacked the AB Varsity Football Team to a 9-1 record, the best record until the 1994 Super Bowl Champions. Overcoming a serious knee injury his junior season, Bobby was among the State's passing leaders with 10 touchdowns and 1008 yard through the air. Bobby garnered the D.C.L. All-Star team quarterback honor. At UMASS Amherst, Bobby was a 4-year Varsity Letterman, receiving the Chancellor's Four-Year Talents Scholarship.
