John Weldon (1945)

John Weldon competed in football, track, and wrestling while attending high school. Wrestling was his favorite sport, and for good reason. Not only did Weldon earn three varsity letters, but during his senior year he went undefeated all the way up to his title of State Champion in the 175-pound division. Weldon also was the 220-yard dash winner at the district meet his senior year, and placed second in the 100-yard dash. He was also a tackle on the Big 12 Championship team in football his junior year.
