Louis J. "Chip" Regine '73 is considered one of the finest passreceivers that Brown football has produced. During his varsitycareer, Regine broke six Brown and Ivy League pass receivingrecords and was named to the All-East first team. He accomplishedall this without the usual gifts one associates with a widereceiver - size and speed. The best program statistics could onlylist him at 6-0, 180 pounds, and his time in the 40-yard dash was arelatively slow 4.9. "Hard work is what did it for Chip," Coach LenJardine said recently. "He knew he wasn't going to outrun anyoneand so he had to run his pass patterns with sharper cuts. Hecouldn't afford many mistakes, and he didn't make many." The otherthing that Chip Regine had going for him was the ability toconcentrate when going up for a pass against two or threedefenders. "Good hands and the ability to concentrate are musts fora good receiver," Jardine adds. "Chip had them both." Following inhis father's footsteps, Regine had a fine career at LaSalleAcademy, leading the team in both ground gaining and scoring fromhis halfback position. After another outstanding year at WorcesterAcademy, Regine entered Brown and found himself a fourth stringhalfback on the freshman team. Shifted to flanker as a sophomore,Regine had moderate success, catching 11 passes for 160 yardsduring a Wishbone season in which Brown kept the ball pretty muchon the ground. He came into his own as a junior, pulling in 31passes for 452 yards. After his senior year, Chip owned the varsityseason records for receptions (51) and yards gained (681), the gamerecords for most receptions (13), yards gained (154), and thelongest pass play (80 yards), and the career mark for most yardsgained on receptions (1293). His Ivy records were for mostreceptions in one game (13) and one season (45). He was an All-NewEngland and All-Ivy choice as a senior. Chip Regine is vicepresident of Regine Pontiac.
