Bob Reardon

"Bob Reardon is the greatest golfer in Boston State College History". That's what legendary Boston State golf coach Ed Barry had to say about Robert Reardon. For two years, Reardon was one of the best golfers on the collegiate level, winning 90% of his matches, while earning team Most Valuable Player honors as a junior and senior. He was the captain of the Warriors' first team in 1967 and again in 1968. Reardon was recognized as the New England Small College League's best golfer, but his success wasn't limited to the greens. The 1969 BSC graduate was one of the institution's finest citizens, being named to Who's Who in American Colleges and Universities two years in a row, along with a two-year membership in the Gold Torch Society and a one-year stint as the Sports Editor for the Chalkdust student newspaper. He was a visible face within the student government as well, serving as vice-president and treasurer of the Student Government Association and went on to earn both the Boston State and Francis Ouimet Graduate Scholarship Award in 1969. Reardon served the U.S. Army upon his graduation and was the golf champion at Fort Dix and later the 5th Naval District golf champ in Norfolk, Virginia. After being named Enlisted Man of the Year by the Armed Forces Staff College, he went on to earn a law degree from Suffolk University in 1975. A member of the Massachusetts Bar Association since 1976, his love for the game of golf has never waned. He has played in many Massachusetts Golf Association championships and was a co-founder of the Edward T. Barry Golf Classic in 1986, where he has earned nine individual titles. Reardon has also made a difference within the community as a member of the Board of Directors and is a foremost fundraiser for Catholic Charities and the Catholic Relief Services.
