Robert was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2005. His citation appears below:
Bob Reck matriculated to Washington College in 1959 from Westminster High School where he participated in varsity soccer, basketball and baseball. Known for his running speed and quickness, he made valuable contributions to the soccer and baseball programs for three varsity years.
In soccer, he played center halfback and forward, with deadly accuracy. During his junior year he scored two goals against American University, aiding the Sho’men to win the northern division of the Mason-Dixon Conference, and then scored the only goal against Lynchburg College for the overall conference championship. Bob was selected to the All-South All-American squad and the Mason-Dixon All-Conference team in both his junior and senior years. His teammates named him Most Valuable Player for the 1961 season and elected him co-captain in his senior year.
In baseball, he was a powerhouse. Bob batted well over .300 in each of his three seasons. During his junior year, he led the Mason-Dixon Conference in home runs. In each of the three years that he competed in baseball, he was selected to both the All Middle Atlantic and All Mason-Dixon Conference all-conference teams. Again, he was selected by his teammates as Most Valuable Player in both his junior and senior years and was co-captain his senior year.
There’s more. He also was a member of the basketball squad during his senior year, and he ran the 100-yard dash in varsity track meets when it didn’t interfere with baseball.
After graduation, Bob became a mathematics teacher and coach of the varsity soccer and baseball teams at South Carroll High School. Today, he is President of the Reck Real Estate Co.
Washington College considers it an honor and privilege to induct Robert L. Reck into the Washington College Athletic Hall of Fame on this seventh day of October, 2005.
