The 2010 USRowing's Carlin Service Award Goes to Albin Moser
Tampa, FL The John J. Carlin Service Award is given to an individual who has made significant and outstanding commitments in support of rowing. This year's winner is Albin Moser. A 1967 graduate of Brown University, Moser is a member of the Brown Athletic Hall of Fame for crew and was a member of the university's All-Decade Football Team (1960s) as a center. Moser served as Brown's men's freshmen coach from 1970-1974 and 1977-1981, completing his tenure with the 1981 IRA Freshman Championship Eight. In 1971, he started a schoolboy sculling program here at the Narragansett Boat Club. This quicikly became a program for boys, girls and adults of all ages. Over nearly four decades, the club has introduced thousands to sculling and continues to do so today. In 2002, after retiring from his career as an educator, Moser returned to the NBC as Director of Rowing and expanded the program so that it now operates almost year round. Moser has developed numerous junior regional and national champions, as well as junior national team athletes, including scullers who have competed in world championships. He has been an active referee since 1983. Over the past seven years, he has also developed the St. Mary Academy - Bay View Crew which is now a full-fledged member of the New England Interscholastic Rowing Association.
