At Brown, under the guidance of former field coach Bob Narcessian, Tim continued to excel. He was named All-Ivy and All-East seven times and All-American four times. In 1979, he won the hammer throw championship, with his entire fraternity cheering for him. Tim still holds the school records in the hammer and 35-lb weight throw.
