One of the all-time great athletes in not only SDSU but NCC history, Weert Englemann was a star performer in track who also performed well in football and basketball. As a sophomore, he scored 19 points in the NCC track meet as he won the discus and low hurdles, placed second in the broad jump and high hurdles, finished third in the javelin and fourth in the shot put. As a junior, he entered six events at the NCC meet and won all of them: high hurdles, low hurdles, discus, shot put, high jump and broad jump. As a senior, he repeated that feat, winning the same six events again.
Perhaps Englemann’s most notable honors came at the Drake Relays where he won the hop-skip-and-jump as a junior, then won the discus title as a senior. A native of Miller, Englemann graduated from SDSU with a degree in engineering in 1930 and went on to play four seasons for the Green Bay Packers.
