Alan H. Young ’64 came to play. As a freshman he broke the Cub soccer scoring record with 25 goals in eight games, led the basketball team in scoring with 226 points, and was a leading hitter and base stealer on the ball club. And when the track team was short of sprinters that spring, Young offered his services and won both dashes against Wesleyan. Over the next three years, “The Fox” won nine letters in soccer, basketball, and baseball, and was voted RI Athlete of the Year by Words Unlimited. The 5-10, 159-pounder from Rockville Center, L.I., led Brown to its best soccer season ever, an 11-2-1 slate in 1963 that brought the Bears their first Ivy title. A supreme opportunist, Young holds the single-game scoring record with five goals against Connecticut and compiled a three-year varsity total of 32 goals. An aggressive competitor, Young served as captain in both soccer and baseball, earned first team All-Ivy honors in these sports, and was one of the finest backcourt men to play basketball at Brown in the past 15 years.
