Robert R. Chase '33
Year Inducted: 1971
Robert R. Chase '33, a heady quarterback, was the guiding genius behind the execution of Coach Tuss McLaughry's triple-wingback formation. He was the team's leading punter for three seasons, its extra point and field goal man, a fast and shifty runner, a solid blocker, and a fine passer. In the Tufts game of 1932, Chase booted a 45-yard field goal, which is still a Brown record. Coach McLaughry rates Chase as one of the finest all-around football players he coached. The 5-10, 165-pounder was one of two Brown players who participated in the North-South game at Baltimore in 1932. Chase was also a low handicap golfer and served as captain of the team his senior year.
