Bob was selected as FIRST TEAM ALL-AMERICAN in both his junior and senior years, the only Windham athlete ever so honored. In his entire career as quarterback, Windham was defeated only twice. Two of Bob's receievers, Fred and Harold Stanley, already enshrined in the Hall of Fame, were also selected as AllAmericans. In 1940, Windham captured 3 of the 6 positions on the All-American team. Bob was also a standout on the Windham basketball teams of that same era, leading the Bombers of Coach Dave Thomas to the PCL championship in both 1940 and 1942.
