Chris Bahr was a placekicker in the National Football League and played midfielder in the North American Soccer League.
Bahr was a first round draft pick of the Philadelphia Atoms in the 1975 North American Soccer League draft. As a rookie midfielder, he made an immediate impression, tying an NASL scoring record for goals by a native-born American by netting 11, including two 2-goal games and four game winners. Bahr also netted the first sudden death goal in Atoms history against the New York Cosmos in front of 20,124 at Veterans Stadium. He was named the 1975 NASL Rookie of the Year. Bahr played 22 games for the Atoms, scoring 11 goals before departing for the NFL.
Bahr also was a member of the 1976 U.S. National Team. He scored both goals for the United States in their 2-0 shutout of Bermuda in the qualifying rounds for the XXI Olympic Games in Montreal, Canada.
Bahr attended Penn State, where he was named an All-American three times for soccer and once for football.
