Edward “Bo” McFarland

Edward “Bo” McFarland, the son of a legendary coach Packy McFarland, is a native of Scarborough, Maine, McFarland was the first Bowdoin College to score 1,300 points, graduating with 1,356, and still holds the career scoring average record, 21.9 points per game. A two-time Division III All-East and All-New England performer, McFarland still holds the all-time season-scoring average among Polar Bears for his 1968-69 season, even without the help of the three-point shot. That season, under head basketball coach Ray Bicknell, McFarland led Bowdoin to a school-record 16 wins against just five losses. That magical 1968-69 season saw McFarland average an unprecedented 25.1 points per game – a program mark that still stands more than 30 years later. He was honored by United Press International as New England Player of the Year.McFarland’s records have stood the test of time, as he still holds Bowdoin records in single-season and career scoring, career field goals (474) and career free throws (469).
