In football, Tom played defensive back as part of a terrific secondary and led the team to a 6-1 record his Class I year. A memorable game occurred in the fall of 1980, when Tom, then a Class II student, had four interceptions against Roxbury Latin, helping Nobles to prevail in the game by a score of 31-28. He was All-League in football twice.

In basketball, Tom ended his Nobles career with more than 1,000 points, the first Nobles player ever to do so, and had a career total of more than 400 assists. He was recognized by the ISL as an All-League player and received the Andrew N. Navoni Sportsmanship award. Coach Nick Marinaro called Tom, “Without a doubt the finest basketball player that Nobles has ever had,” in an article in the June 9, 1982 edition of the Nobleman.

In the spring, Tom took to the baseball diamond where he was a three-year starter and shortstop. During his senior year he helped lead the team to a 10-2 record and in the two summers before and after his senior year, received All-Area honors playing American Legion Baseball.

Tom attended Bowdoin College after graduating from Nobles with distinction. He was captain of the Bowdoin basketball and baseball teams, earned a total of seven varsity letters and was recognized with multiple college awards for his leadership and sportsmanship.
