SHAWNEE INDUCTS TWO TO HALL OF FAME

Shawnee inducted both Randy James and the late Warren “Wahoo” Weller to its football hall of fame at halftime of Friday's game against Deer Creek.

James, who graduated in 1958, played halfback and defensive back from 1955-57.

Weller graduated in 1959 after moving to Shawnee from Binger in 1957. He starred in four sports — football, basketball, baseball and track. He was played football and ran track at Northeast Oklahoma A&M, where he was named a Junior College Gridwire All-American. He finished his playing career at Wichita State.
