Squirmin’ Herman

Squirmin’ Herman Wedemeyer, born May 20, 1924 in Hilo, played football for St Louis College (now St Louis;) passing on scholarships to Notre Dame and Ohio State, he attended St Mary’s, in rural Moraga, California. Although they lost their first game, 17-year-old Wedemeyer was “the most sensational discovery to come over the horizon since the Santa Maria... California won the ball game but Herman Wedemeyer won the hearts of every man, woman, and child present.” He later led St Mary’s to the Pacific Coast title; played in the Sugar Bowl; went Pro; then was on Hawaiʻi Five-0.
