Robert Frick

2000 SRVHS Athletic Hall of Fame

Robert Frick, Class of 1935:

Robert “Bob” Frick attended San Ramon Valley Union High School (as it was known at the time) from 1931 until graduation in 1935.

Mr. Frick played 4 varsity seasons and was named all-league all 4 of those seasons. As a Varsity Football star, Bob helped to elevate the San Ramon team to Championship status in each of the four years he played. (Under Coach Laverne Brown, San Ramon boasted Championship status for 5 consecutive years in the early 1930’s). Mr. Frick competed at the state level twice during his illustrious high school career.

Mr. Frick is perhaps best known for his athletic achievements as a Track & Field star when he set the SRVUHS record for both the 100-yard dash and the 220-yard dash. Bob ran the 100-yard in 9.6 seconds and the 220-yard in 21.5 seconds. Incredible feats that have yet to be matched-both of Frick’s records have stood unchallenged for over 65 years at San Ramon!

The highest award that is currently bestowed upon outstanding Track & Field athletes at SRVHS is appropriately named the Bob Frick Award.

Continuing his education at U.C. Berkeley, Robert ran track there as well. Following college, Mr. Frick went into the Real Estate business.

Robert “Bob” Frick, now in his 80’s, currently resides in Tiburon, California.
