Frederick R. Buck, Jr. '70
Hometown: Baltimore, MD
Year Inducted: 1994
Rick Buck came to Brown from the Gilman School, where he captained the 1966 team which finished with a 9-1 record. At Brown, he was a three-year starter, accumulating 41 goals and 86 assists. He was a member of one of Brown's finest attack units...Anthony, Buck and Scalise. Coach Cliff Stevenson still regards this attack unit the best in the country at that time. Buck was clearly the team leader in 1970, and he, along with defenseman Bruce Pitt, co-captained the team.
As a result of his outstanding play Rick received 3rd Team All-Ivy in 1968 and in 1970 he was selected 2nd Team All-Ivy. In 1970 he was also selected 3rd Team All-American and 2nd Team All-New England. The 1969 team was the first Brown team to win the Ivy title.
In 1973-74 Rick was the head coach of the Loyola team and his assistant was his former co-captain Bruce Pitt '70. This began the rebirth of lacrosse at Loyola.
Rick has recently accepted a new position as Director of Risk Management with Diamond Comic Distributors, the world's largest distributor of comic books. He and his wife, Barbara, reside in Baltimore and have two children, Matthew (a sophomore at Williams) and Maggie (a high school senior at the Bryn Mawr School).
