|Title:||Class of 1989|
George Albro, athletics have played a major role in your life
and you, in turn, have played a major role in the lives of many
young athletes as a coach. You were a fierce competitor as a
player, a trait which has not diminished throughout your coaching
You were a team leader at point guard during your career at Worcester State, handing out a record number of assists as well as scoring 648 points from 1961 through 1965. You led the team in assists for four straight years.
You were a key starter for the 1961-62 Worcester State team that won the New England State College Championship and finished with a 16-7 record. Your leadership and determination resulted in you being selected Co-Captain of the basketball team your senior year and you also served as an officer in the Men's Athletic Association for two years. In addition to your basketball achievements you also earned two varsity letters in baseball.
You continue to serve Worcester State College as treasurer of the Worcester State Alumni Board of Directors and a member of the Athletic Hall of Fame selection committee. You served Worcester State as assistant men's basketball coach for five years and as head coach from 1979 through 1982.
You have coached baseball at Leicester High School and your team has won the Southern Worcester County Championships in 1986 and 1987. You are currently coaching basketball at Leicester and your team won the Southern Worcester County League championship in 1987, and you were selected as the District E Coach of the Year.
You are currently a teacher in the Leicester School System and your continued dedication to your College and your students serve as an example for all of us.
George Albro, it is with great pride that we induct you into the Worcester State College Athletic Hall of Fame.
