Athletics Hall of Fame

Robert Summers '26

Class of 2010

Football, Hockey, Baseball, Track

Robert Summers has been called “Nobles’ greatest all-around athlete.” He was the star running back on the football team, a captain of the hockey team, a world-class runner for the track team and a standout hitter on the baseball team. An extraordinary sportsman with unmatched speed and agility, Bob played four varsity sports and earned a total of 15 letters during his time at Nobles.

He was a standout runner and a lead scorer throughout his four years on the football team. In the winter, he split the season between hockey and the school’s one-time track team, where he excelled at the 40-yard dash, high jump and the hurdles. During his senior year, Bob broke an interscholastic record and tied a world record in the 45-yard high hurdles in a Boston Athletic Association meet.

But hockey was Bob’s first love. He was a top defenseman and averaged more than a goal a game during his two years as captain. In the spring, Bob was a four-year veteran of the baseball team and was elected team captain his junior and senior years. His running ability combined with his excellent throwing arm made him an ideal center fielder, but it is his batting for which Bob is most remembered. Over the course of his baseball career, he hit close to .500.
