Timothy J. Moreau
Class of 1975
A three-sport athlete who was named the Outstanding Male Athlete of the class of 1975, Tim Moreau was an integral part of the great CCHS hockey teams which made two trips to the Boston Garden.
The fourth of eight children, Moreau grew up in the shadow of Emerson Field on Hubbard Street and attended Alcott and Sanborn Schools before moving on to the high school in the fall of 1972.
After seeing limited time on the varsity hockey team as a sophomore, Moreau burst on the scene as a junior in 1973, helping coach Dan Bova's team to a school-best 174-3 record and trip the quarterfinals of the state tournament at the old Garden. Moreau was the right wing on a line with fellow inductee John Tortorella and Brett Smith, recording 287 goals and 34 assists for 61 points in 24 games to earn Boston Globe Honorable Mention All-Scholastic accolades.
Named a co-captain his senior year, Moreau led the Patriots to a 16-5-3 record and return trip to the quarterfinals on Causeway Street, losing to a powerful Hingham High unit which featured NHL Hall of Famer Rod Langway. Tim was named Dual Country League Co-MVP and a Globe All-Scholastic after finishing second in the league in scoring, lighting the lamp 38 times and adding 33 assists for 71 points. Following the season, Moreau was presented with the Charles Sheehan Award as team MVP.
Moreau also found success on the football field, earning two letters under coach Al Robichaud as a running back and defensive back. As a senior tri-captain, Tim rushed for 1,060 yards, including career bests of 210 yards and two touchdowns against Cambridge Rindge and Latin and 195 yards vs Weston. The winner of the Richard Elson Award as the team MVP, Tim was also named a DCL All-Star for his two way play.
Come spring, Moreau could be found on the baseball diamond, where he was a member of coach Brent Clark's varsity nine for two years. A utility player as a junior, Moreau was the starting third baseman as a senior, leading the Patriots to a lé-4 mark and state tournament appearance, where they lost to eventual state champion Durfee.
Following graduation from CCHS, Moreau attended Ithaca College for one year, playing varsity hockey before the program was discontinued. Tim then transferred to Bridgewater State, skating for the Bears and earning mention in the Guinness Book of World Records for an assist on the first goal ever scored by a goalie in college hockey.
After a few years playing hockey in a league in Montana, Tim returned to the Concord area and has worked in the family trucking business at Nuclear Metals. Currently a resident of Maynard, Tim was married to Dawn McDavitt in 1993 and became a father to Catherine Chelsea last February.
"The best and most important memories were the great support I had from my family for four years", says Moreau. "We played two years at the Garden, which was a great thrill, and all the families were completely behind us all the way."
