Wenatchee High School Athletic Hall of Fame

Dewey Keith
CLASS of 1951 Football, Track, Basketball and Baseball ATHLETE
A gifted natural athlete recognized for unselfish team play, he lettered in football, basketball, track and baseball as a junior and senior. In all, Dewey amassed ten letters during his three years in high school (3 in both football and track, 2 in both basketball and baseball).

On the gridiron, he was a team leader while excelling as a passer and pigskin packer. Dewey's role as floor general and assist leader helped spur the basketball team to as high as third in state polls. In track, he set a district record in the 440 and anchored the district record setting 880 relay to qualify for the state meet in both events. Dewey also started for the baseball squad contributing excellent defensive skills as well as at the plate.

To top off his busy schedule at WHS, he was student body vice president and sports editor of The Apple Leaf newspaper. Dewey earned the "Panther Best" award as a senior.

He starred as a running back at Wenatchee Junior College before transferring to Washington State College and playing football for the Cougars.
