Extractions: Sports Card Recollections (This is an excerpt from an article by Ron Jacobs, Hawaii Magazine, December 1996) ...Among collectors in Hawaii, a local boy card features a player who was born in and/or played high school or college ball in Hawaii. There are far more local boy football cards than from the other sports combined. A few sons of Hawaii enjoyed marginal careers in major league baseball. Several University of Hawaii basketball players rode benches in the National Basketball Association. Anyone know of any professional hockey players from Hawaii? There have been local boy football cards since 1948, the year that the Exhibit Supply Company of Chicago immortalized the firstand possibly the greatestfootball star to emerge from the Islands: "Squirmin'" Herman Wedemeyer, "The Flyin' Hawaiian." A flamboyant runner, Wedemeyer was a sensation from the moment he donned the uniform of the Crusaders of St. Louis. Then the school was called a college but actually it was one of the eight members of the original ILH (the others being Punahou, Kamehameha, Iolani, McKinley, Roosevelt, Kaimuki, and Farrington). After graduation, Wedemeyer was headed for Notre Dame, but, as he recently told me, his transcript failed to arrive at South Bend, Indiana, in time. "Also," said Wedemeyer, "I knew St. Mary's would be much warmer and closer to home, so I enrolled there."

But in spite of its size and location, in the two decades preceding WWII, St. Mary's football team stood toe to toe with some of college football's biggest and toughest powerhouses. The St. Mary's Galloping Gaels made regular bowl appearances from the 1920s through the 1940s, won the Cotton Bowl in 1939 and garnered nation-wide respect as a force to be reckoned with.

Extractions: Special to the Star-Bulletin HE was a popular actor, a professional baseball player and a politician. But Herman Wedemeyer's pioneering accomplishments as a football player in the 1940s made him a legend. His greatest gift to Hawaii came from his time on the football field. "The type of role model that Herman Wedemeyer was, he played the game for all the right reasons because he loved the game," said Russ Francis, who was drafted in the first round (16th overall) by the New England Patriots in 1975. "What he showed a lot of kids in Hawaii like myself, is that we don't have to feel inferior or intimidated by ... athletes on the mainland." Wedemeyer, who died Jan. 25 this year at the age of 74, was an All-American football player at St. Mary's College in California and a regular on television's "Hawaii Five-O," playing Edward D. "Duke" Lukela, from 1971-1980. Francis, a Kailua native who was the second player from Hawaii drafted in the first round and is one of five all-time, says Wedemeyer put Hawaii on the football map.

Extractions: email@example.com "My claim to fame is I gave him the ball every time he made a great play. It was Charlie, mostly, with the rest of us helping him a little. This is a bold thing to say, but I think he's one of the best high school athletes in the 20th century in Hawaii. When I see Charlie, it's sad, but when I see him I think I can never feel sorry for myself. The challenges are absolutely incredible. What we're learning through Charlie is that real strength is spiritual. And I would be remiss if I did not say his wife is a saint." Fred Hemmings, Punahou center, 1964 Every once in a while, the Wedemeyers of Los Gatos, Calif., get a phone call from actor Michael Nouri. Knowing that Lucy and Charlie like jokes, Nouri usually pretends he is somebody else famous. Eventually, Lucy or Charlie figure out it's him. Then the actor gets serious. Maybe he didn't get a part, or a director is hassling him.

Extractions: (January 26, 1999) Herman Wedemeyer, an All-America football player who retook the national stage three decades later as a regular on "Hawaii Five-O," died Monday, January 25, 1999. He was 74. Wedemeyer died at noon at the Queen's Medical Center of complications from a heart attack, said one of his sisters, Winona Gaison. He suffered a heart attack last week and had been on life support, she said. A native of Hilo, Wedemeyer was also a businessman who served briefly as a Honolulu city councilman and state representative. But he was best known for his performances on the football field as a halfback for St. Mary's College in California and before the cameras as cop "Duke" Lukela in "Hawaii Five-O." Wedemeyer was inducted to the National Football Foundation College Hall of Fame in 1979. In 1945 the famed sportswriter Grantland Rice called Wedemeyer the greatest athlete in the country after he was named to the Associated Press and United Press International All-America teams that year. "Herman was all-around," said former University of Hawaii halfback Tommy Kaulukukui, 84. "He could pass and run. He was a very deceptive kind of runner, fake one way and go the other. They called him Squirmin' Herman."
