Robert G. Driscoll

Class of 1970

With a list of athletic achievements a mile long, it was no surprise when Bob garnered the Outstanding Senior Athlete award at CCHS. A natural leader, he captained each of the three sports he played and was named team MVP for each as well. His performance on the ice earned him the Charles Sheehan and Hustler awards.

He enjoyed playing football for Walter Carew, and was a fierce competitor. Many consider him the hardest hitter ever to wear a Concord uniform. When the going got tough Bobby got his teammates going, often by making the big play when it was needed. He particularly remembers getting up for the Thanksgiving Day games against Lexington.

The CCHS hockey coach, Dan Bova, loved Bob's hard hitting, scrappy play and his scoring from the forward position. Two of his hockey highlights were scoring five goals against Lexington, and beating an undefeated State Champion Melrose team. A three year baseball starter at short stop, he was a smooth fielder, quick, and had a gun for an arm which threw out many runners trying to beat out a hit or score a run.

Following graduation, Bob took his talents to Ithaca College where he further honed his hockey skills and continued his leadership role as captain in his sophomore, junior and senior years. He was Ithaca's leading scorer for three consecutive seasons, and earned ECAC and ICAC All Star honors as well. When he graduated with a B.S. degree in Physical Education he was the second leading scorer in the school's history.

He currently lives in Dublin, California with his wife Catherine Tsai and has three children, Tara (12), Kelly (8), and Sean (5). He is the Executive Associate Athletic Director at the University of California.
