Robert E. Thorn

Robert E. Thorn was the Director of Athletics at Grove City College.

"Robert E. Thorn is a product of our own college graduating in 1916.  During his college career he established an enviable records as an all around athlete and held the unusual distinction of being a four-sport man.  "Bob" played four years of baseball as a catcher and first baseman and captained the team in 1915.  Playing a guard position on the basketball five, he laid the foundation of his success as coach.  His speed won him a position on the football team of '13 as end, and as quarterback his work was a large factor in the success of the champion team of '15.  he also won a letter in tennis in 1915.  His election as president of the senior class is indicative of his high rating among his fellow students.   After graduating Thorn was coach in the high schools at Grove City, Pa., Lima, Ohio, and Franklin, Pa. His success earned him an appointment as Director of Athletics of the Erie High Schools, which he declined to come to Grove City.  In the years he has been here he has made Grove City famous as a basketball school and as a Director of Athletics he has been largely instrumental in her all around success."
