Outstanding athlete who played end, tailback and defensive back on the undefeated Sequoia Team of 1959 and 1960. All S.P.A.L. Team of 1960.
Ted Sweeting becomes a double inductee on the basis of a storied career in Sequoia aquatics. Coach Bob Whitmore regards Sweeting and Marty Hull as the most versatile performers in his amazing swim stable in the fifties and sixties. While the backstroke was his principal event, Sweeting was good for first-place points in freestyle and breast stroke competition, as well—anywhere Whitmore decided to enter him. “With Ted and Marty, I could just about count on six first places going into any dual meet,” Whitmore reflected. “They made me a pretty good coach.”
College football starter at University of Arizona 1961-64. Later became captain in the U.S Air Force, killed in a crash accident in 1971.
