Dick Vogt 1968-1872
In May of 1972, SSHS graduated one of the best three-sport athletes in its history. Dick Vogt was a letterman in football, basketball and a newly-formed baseball team. All-Conference football honors were awarded to Dick during his junior season; then, as a senior, he received All-Conference and All-District recognition. The Hounds were I-70 Conference Football champions in 1971 and were ranked #4 in the state during mid-season. John Johnson, head football coach (1970-76), said his star running back “racked up almost a mile of total offense” during the 1971 campaign. The basketball Greyhounds took second in the I-70 Conference during Vogt’s senior season and continued their winning ways as district and regional champs – losing in overtime during sectionals. Following Dick’s senior MVP season in baseball, he played one year at State Fair Community College. Since graduating, Dick has been a long-time umpire, referee and coach. Highlights include serving as an umpire for the MSHSAA softball and baseball Final Four games and as a referee for the Lion’s Club All-Star football games and the MIAA women’s basketball league as well as the Final Four. Dick will be recognized in 2016 by MSHSAA for 25 years of basketball officiating.
