Baruch was a star halfback for Princeton University in the 1920s.
Birth and Death Dates:
In 1926, while playing at Princeton, Baruch was named New York Times All-America honorable mention, and AP All-America honorable mention. That year, the Tigers had a record of 5-1-1. In one of the games, they defeated Harvard 12-0 in a match so rough and with such ill-feeling that the schools temporarily suspended all athletic contests between them. The schools did not play each other in football for the next eight years.
After missing the 1927 season, Baruch returned to the Tiger football team in 1928. That season, they won their first seven games and outscored their opponents 143-20. In 1929, the Tigers finished with a weak record of 2-4-1.
Baruch played halfback at Princeton University in 1926, and from 1928-1929.
