    I got to know Chris right away freshman year.  He roomed with John Worcester just two doors down the hall from me on 2nd Davis.  Chris was quiet, with a dry sense of humor.  Being a "townie", he shared useful information with us.  He was a good all-around athlete and a key member of our floor's basketball and touch football teams.
