Class of 2010
Football, Hockey, Baseball
Barry Treadwell was a three-year varsity letter winner in football, hockey and baseball. In football, he played tailback for three years and was known for both his arm and his running abilities. His senior year he threw for six touchdowns and ran for four more. He was a standout on Motley’s Pond in the winter and played a huge part in leading the 1959-’60 hockey team to a first-place finish in conference play. He finished his Nobles career with 31 goals and 18 assists, leading his team in scoring both his junior and senior seasons. In the spring, he was a two-time captain of the baseball team. He was the team’s slugger and shortstop. In his senior year, his .386 batting average, 15 runs scored, and 19 runs batted in, led the team.
Beyond his impressive stats, Barry had a strong impact on his peers. Barry’s 1960 classmates remember him as “the leader, a young man whose quiet determination, exemplary performance and conduct on the field of play, and devotion to sportsmanship, were an inspiration to those who played with him, even more than his evident athletic gifts.”
He was captain of the Harvard freshman hockey team. In 1963, his Harvard varsity team beat Boston College 4-3 in double overtime to capture the ECAC Hockey Championship. He coached youth hockey in Massachusetts and Pennsylvania for many years and played hockey himself into his 50s.
