Robert F. Hall '66, a 6-1, 190-pound quarterback from Walpole, MA, set a Brown career total offense record of 3,214 yards - 1,129 rushing and 2,085 passing. In his senior year, Hall was virtually a one-man show on a relatively weak Brown team. He gained 557 yards rushing, scored five touchdowns, completed 135 of 254 passes for 1,340 yards, and returned kickoffs 396 yards. Hall put his stamp on the record book, setting 15 Brown and five Ivy marks. A clutch player, his best performances were usually against tough clubs. Against Princeton in his senior year, Hall passed for three touchdowns and scored a fourth himself while amassing a total offense of 338 yards. He finished the 1965 season seventh nationally in passing and eighth in total offense. He was a two-time All-Ivy, All-East, winner of the George Bulger Lowe Award as New England's best player, and was named Athlete of the Year by Words Unlimited of Rhode Island. Hall also was first string catcher on the baseball team.
