Frederick Reinhold

Class of 1934

Frederick was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1981. His citation appears below:

Frederick William “Fritz” Reinhold, a Baltimore native, excelled in two sports at Washington College. Playing football for four years, he was small but a recognized “mighty mite.” His punting ability was one of his team’s best defensive weapons. He was also a hard running and tackling halfback.

Lacrosse came naturally to Fritz. Fast and courageous, he was one of the best goalies during his pIaying career, 1931 to 1934. He was named All-American goalie in 1933 and 1934. The Baltimore American called him a “crack” goalie and praised Fritz and the 1934 team he captained for their successful fight to prevent lacrosse from being dropped by the athletic council.

Earlier, in 1932, Fritz was selected by the Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association to play on the A11 Star Team against a Canadian team at the Chicago Worlds Fair. Although the game was canceled, it did not diminish his selection as an American All Star.

Fritz was the first in a parade of numerous Washington College All-Americans in lacrosse. Following graduation he went on to earn a master’s degree in engineering, and was employed for many years at the University of Virginia Medical Center in Charlottesville, where he retired in 1981.

INDUCTED October 9, 1981.
