Members of the Ridgewood High School Athletic Hall Of Fame are those that have made a lasting impact on the school’s sports program as either student players, coaches, or supporters. Often the student players have continued to influence their chosen sports after high school by ongoing participation in athletics.
Pete Campbell, 2004 Inductee
When he graduated, the 6-foot-2, 160 pound Campbell held every individual scoring record at Ridgewood High School as well as four league standards and one county mark. With his accurate one-handed jump shot, he tallied 578 points in 22 games in his senior year and averaged 20 rebounds per game. He was All-Ivy three years at Princeton University, leading the Ivy League in scoring one season, ranking second the other two.
A brilliant math mind, Pete graduated from Harvard Business School and worked first at Price Waterhouse, then as comptroller at First Boston. He then became the CFO of Dillon, Read, and finally, was an options trader on the American Stock Exchange. He also was golf champion at Ridgewood Country Club. He passed away on October 23, 1995 at home in HoHoKus. Pete was an All-American basketball player who broke Chet Forte’s Ivy League scoring record.
