Wolverine Girl's Varsity Coach Tom Philbrick inducted into the Orono High School Sports Hall of Fame on December 1st, 2018.
Philbrick (1974) became the first boys basketball player in school history to score 1,000 career points. The four-year varsity player was a first-team all-conference and all-tournament selection who earned BDN All-Maine second-team status as a junior and first-team accolades as a senior as the Red Riots captured the Class B state crown in 1973 and the Eastern Maine title again in 1974.
The 6-foot-6 Philbrick also played defensive end and tight end in football, and right field in baseball before moving on to Husson College in Bangor, where he helped the school’s basketball team compile a four-year record of 98-12, and win three conference championships, two NAIA District 5 titles, and trips to the NAIA national tournament in 1975 and 1976. He ended his career at Husson with 1,316 points and 826 career rebounds, and was inducted as part of the 1976 men’s basketball team into the Husson Athletic Hall of Fame in 2012. Philbrick resides in Boothbay, and is owner and operator of Boothbay Lobster Wharf, Philbrick Lobster Co. and East Boothbay Lobster Pound.
We are very lucky to have Tom Philbrick teaching our student athletes!
