Blue Devil Alumni
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— starting all four years-and was named to the All-Defensive Team in both 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 season. He graduated from Illinois State in 1994 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Communications. Todd and his wife, Missy, reside in Swansea, Illinois where he manages a financial institution.
