Hall of Fame Inductee - Todd Wemhoener
You can’t forget the way he demanded respect. You can’t forget the
level of intensity he brought to the court. You can’t forget Todd
Wemhoener. Earning varsity basketball letters all four years at QHS,
Wemhoener took it upon himself to lead. He knew others would follow.
After a averaging 18 points a game for a 17-7 Blue Devil team his junior
year, Wemhoener assembled 3 of his closet friends and entered every
three-on-three tournament they could find during the off season. That
effort earned the Blue Devils of 1990 a spot in the state’s final four.
Wemhoener sparked Quincy with an 18-point average-was named the teams
MVP-earned spots on 2 All-State teams-and was chosen as the Herald Whig
Player of the year. Wemhoener left QHS as the school’s all-time leading
three-point shooter and the 8th all-time scorer in school history. An
athletic scholarship to Illinois State University provided Todd with
another challenge-perform at the Division I Level. He responded---

his junior and senior season. Wemhoener earned a spot on GTE’s
All-Academic team his junior year was chosen as team captain his senior
