Tim Scheidecker was another outstanding multi-sport athlete at Napa High who made significant contributions to the football, baseball and track teams in the early 1970s. As a sophomore, he started in football as a defensive lineman on the North Bay League championship team. He was converted to tailback in his junior year and he gained almost 900 yards. He was named to the All-North Bay League team and the All-Redwood Empire team. He was named Back of the Week two times during the season. As a senior, opposing defenses keyed on Scheidecker, but he still gained almost 900 yards on the ground and was Napa High’s Back of the Year. He was named to Napa’s first All-City team and again gained All-NBL and All-Redwood Empire Honors. Scheidecker ran for almost 1,800 yards during his two years as Napa High’s tailback, which is among the leaders in the school’s history. In baseball, Scheidecker was a key member of the 1973 North Bay League champions. As a senior, he played first base and, during the same period, ran the 100-yard dash and was a member of the 400-yard relay team for the Napa High track team.
