Iggulden, Brian '67 - Hockey

Brian Iggulden from the Class of 1967 is a part of a legacy at Ridley that spans generations. His lifetime contributions to the school are as impressive as his athletic achievements, but, since the latter prove more measureable, let’s stick to the stats. As a Lower School student he was a leader on the football, hockey and cricket teams. In Upper School, he captained the Under 16 Football, First Hockey and First Cricket teams, played First Soccer and helped his team win the Little Big Four Cricket Championships of 1966 and 1967. After graduation, he represented Middlebury College at the freshman and varsity levels in both soccer and hockey. He was the co-captain of the Middlebury hockey team for two years and along with his linemate, the first juniors to be named captain in the school’s history. He was also voted to the all-state and all east teams in his junior year. And let’s not forget his celebrated cricket career, captaining the Canadian Colts in 1967 (the first Canadian-born captain), representing at the provincial level and touring the UK with the national team in 1974. He maintains an active and fulfilling sporting life, playing golf and tennis. Some of his fondest memories involve playing in tennis championships with his children Natalie and Michael, themselves graduates of the school. When asked to share the greatest lessons learned from sport, it comes as no surprise that he quotes the schoolmasters who helped shape our school, defining what it means to be a Ridleian in terms of both character and grit: Harry Griffith’s famous line “If you lose say nothing, if you win say less,” and Ed Burn’s powerful cricket reminder, “If you know you are out, walk in.”
“If you win say nothing, if you lose say less.” – Harry Griffith
