Biography

A 6-6 (1.98) forward, Pete McCaffrey played for St. Louis University in the late 50s but really blossomed as a player after college. He played AAU basketball for several years, mainly with the Goodyear Wingfoots, and it was while he was playing with them that he was named to the 1964 Olympic team. McCaffrey was a three-time AAU All-America with the Wingfoots, although he had started his AAU career with the Buchan Bakers. McCaffrey also played for the USA at the 1963 World Championships, although that team failed to medal, placing fourth. His business career was also spent with Goodyear in Akron, Ohio.
