Terry William Chapman '65, a two-time All-Ivy selection, captained Brown's NCAA sextet of 1964-65, a team that ended 21-9, won the Ivy League title, and finished second in the East. During that season, Chapman and his linemate, Bruce Darling, led the team in scoring with 49 points each and also led the Ivy League in scoring. Chappy ended his career with 127 points, which placed him fourth at that time on the all-time Brown scoring list behind Don Sennott '52 (152), Bobby Wheeler '52 (143), and Leon Bryant '65 (130). And his output of 67 career goals was topped only by Wheeler's 83 and Sennott's 68. The native of Chatham, Ont., was a colorful hockey player, one who had a flair for the spectacular. One of his favorite tricks was to come down the ice, circle behind the cage, and then suddenly give a fake one way and tuck the puck into the goal on the other side. "Terry Chapman was one of the soundest players in the East during the 1960's," Coach Jim Fullerton says. "He was a sharp-shooter from his center position, got the most out of his wings, and always played the game at both ends of the ice. It's very appropriate that both Chappy and Leon Bryant enter the Brown Hall of Fame the same year. They are two of Brown's best." Three years after his graduation, Terry Chapman proved that "old" hockey players never lose their touch. In the annual battle between the Old Grads and the Cubs, Chapman put the puck into the cage four times as the alumni team came out ahead, 5-4, although huffin' and puffin' a bit. Chapman had a brief tryout with the Rhode Island Reds several years after graduation but didn't stay with the professional game. He's now living in Florida.
