Richard” Dickie” Whitmore III was one of the foundations for Waterville’s successful teams in the early to mid- 1980s which culminated in their 1985 State Championship run. He was a third team All-State selection in 1983 and a first team selection in 1986 as well as a first team All-tourney choice his senior year. Following a successful high school career that solidified his place as one of Waterville High School’s greatest players, Dick enrolled in Brown University. Dick immediately made his mark as a freshman starter and lettered three years for the Bears. He was a leader on and off the court as he brought his “coaching mind” to the game in which he was immersed growing up .Injuries cut short his playing career after three seasons at Brown; he joins his father and brother in the MBHoF, a family feat unmatched in Maine basketball.
