MORE THAN ONE SPORT MAN
One of your readers (Nov. 22) said he could not consider Robbie Ftorek as a superstar because he played only one sport. You know of Ftorek's hockey exploits. No one to date has been able to fill Boston Garden the way he did in high school—every year. But in addition to playing hockey, Robbie was the star of the Needham (Mass.) High School soccer team, helping to bring division, Eastern Massachusetts and state titles to Needham. And he played baseball, both at Needham High and for the local American Legion team.
To the residents of Needham and to everyone who has ever thrilled to his performance in any of his sports, Robbie Ftorek will always be a star of the highest magnitude.
