Robert Nayer to be inducted into Brandeis Athletic Hall of Fame

March 08, 2012

Robert Nayer, director of operating and capital budgets, will be inducted into the 14th class of the Joseph Linsey Brandeis Athletic Hall of Fame during ceremonies at 6:30 p.m. on March 31 in the Gosman Sports and Convocation Center.

Nayer, a native of Brooklyn, N.Y., and member of the class of 1970, was a stalwart on the basketball teams of the late 1960s. A 1,000-point scorer, Nayer finished just seven rebounds shy of the 1,000-1,000 club. His 993 caroms still rank second on the Judges’ career list. A two-time MVP of in-season tournaments, Nayer was selected as an alternate for the 1969 US Maccabiah team and was a Jewish All-American as a senior, when he pulled down 319 caroms, also second in school history. Nayer, who received a Master of Public Administration from SUNY at Albany, has at Lewis & Clark since 1999.

The Brandeis Athletic Hall of Fame currently includes five teams, 12 former coaches and administrators and 92 alumni.
