Never Row: Drew Schreiber's Story

Aug. 21, 2009

WASHINGTON - Teamwork and preparation are essential ingredients in every successful athletic program. Drew Schreiber, true to his athletic roots, epitomizes these virtues as the 2008-09 J. Gregory Carroll award recipient. This honor is presented annually to an outstanding volunteer for Hoyas Unlimited.

Drew spent half of his athletic career on the Hilltop as a four-year starter on the football team. Along the way, he joined the crew team. He has been pulling hard for crew ever since.

Drew is a long-time member of the rowing alumni board and has served as president of the Georgetown Rowing Association since 2004. In 1997, he and three classmates initiated the successful annual gathering of rowing alumni in New York City. In addition, Drew has overseen a more than 40 percent increase in annual giving to crew during his tenure as president of the GRA.

In the summer of 2007, as president of the GRA, Drew began to build a team of committed volunteers to plan and prepare for a celebration of 50 years of the modern-era crew. Over the course of the next twelve months, Drew organized meetings, conference calls, and initiated countless communications. He worked closely with Hoya staff, while cajoling, encouraging and soliciting his fellow volunteers and alumni rowers to make this celebration the biggest and best rowing weekend ever held on campus.

What ensued was an event that exceeded even these high expectations. Never Row Weekend saw over 500 rowing participants attend one of the most successful athletic events ever held at Georgetown. The weekend included an alumni row, the famed Pennekamp Barbecue, a special library exhibit on the history of Georgetown Crew, a John Glavin-led campus tour and the Vespoli Shell Reception. These activities culminated in a gala dinner that honored the founding members of the crew, all past coaches in attendance and Will Packard, the Agar Award recipient.

Drew, engaged to Bridget Lotter, is a private investor working and living in San Francisco, California.
