Aubrey Hudson

Class of


Aubrey Hudson¬†is considered one of downstate Delaware’s finest all-around high school athletes. Graduating from Georgetown in 1951, Hudson lettered for three straight years in four sports:
football, basketball, baseball and track. A versatile football player, he was a running back, punter, place-kicker and defensive back. Aubrey scored 12 touchdowns in his senior season, finishing
third in state scoring to Hall of Famers Ron Waller and Bunny Blaney, and was named third team All-State. At 5′ 7″ and 150 pounds, Hudson was a prolific scorer in basketball, becoming the first
schoolboy basketball player in Delaware to score 50 points in a game. In 1951, he was named first team All-State – the only downstate player so honored that year, and the only first team basketball
selection in Georgetown history. In track, Aubrey led Georgetown to three straight undefeated seasons. He won 39 of the 41 races in which he competed. In a dual meet in 1951, Hudson broke the
existing state record in the 220 yard dash and at the state track meet; he was second to Ron Waller, losing by a step. In baseball, he led the team in hitting and base stealing while playing several
positions. Aubrey played freshman football at the University of Delaware, but left to enter the Air Force, where he played on football and basketball teams. Later, he joined the Delaware State Police
and retired with a rank of lieutenant. Hudson now lives in Lewes and is an outstanding senior tennis player.
