by Steve Hammond ’73


Every year when this award in his name is announced, people like me, who were lucky enough to have known Sid Weikert, sit back and smile. We think of the good moments, the fun times we spent with the friend who left us too early on that December night in 1972. And for those like me, with a child approaching college age, we can hope that his spirit of love and friendship for college students has been rekindled in someone else. Someone who is out there somewhere to look out for our kids like he did for us.

Steve Hammond, class of 1973, is chairman of the Alumni Executive Council’s Athletic Hall of Fame Committee.
