“Big Bob” Pollard was a gentle giant. During his junior and senior years, he led the basketball team to winning seasons, which included the State Catholic Championship in 1984 and 1985. He was a dominating presence on the floor and led the team in scoring and rebounding.
After graduation, Bob received a scholarship to play basketball at the University of the District of Columbia. It was there that Bob’s life ended tragically while playing the sport that he loved. The Robert Pollard Scholarship was established to support needy and underprivileged students.
