Robert Shriver

Class of 1973

Robert was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1992. His citation appears below:

When modern day lacrosse at Washington College is discussed, Bob Shriver’s name envariably comes up as one of the finest midfielders ever to grace the Sho’men playing field.

Bob played for four years from 1970 through 1973, serving as captain his last two years. His post-season accolades included being selected as both an All-American and an All-South Middle Atlantic All Conference performer in 1972 and 1973. In 1973 he was chosen to participate in the annual USILA North/South game.

Bob also participated in varsity soccer for two years and developed into an outstanding goalie.

Upon his graduation this former president of the Theta Chi fraternity was awarded the Thomas Reeder Spedden Award for outstanding accomplishments in both athletics and academics.

His post-college involvement in the game included both play in club lacrosse and coaching on the prep school and club lacrosse level. He was selected as an alternate for the USA Lacrosse Team in 1974 and 1978 and as a Club Lacrosse All-American in 1974. Playing for the Chesapeake Lacrosse Club in 1974 he was chosen “Rookie of the Year.” Professionally he played for the Maryland Arrows and the Boston Bolts.

Bob has since developed into an outstanding lacrosse coach. His Boy’s Latin teams are annual contenders for the Baltimore schoolboy championship. He was selected MSA “Coach of the Year” in 1984 and 1985. He also coached club lacrosse and was selected “Coach of the Year” in club lacrosse in 1978.

Washington College is proud to welcome Bob Shriver into its Athletic Hall of Fame this third day of October, 1992.
