Hector MacLean was a three-sport star of Napa High, excelling in football, basketball and track. Although information is unavailable regarding his track accomplishments, he was a starter and outstanding player on the 1924-25 and 1925-26 basketball teams, both of which won league championships and North Coast district championships and both of which went undefeated until the final game of the season in the semi-finals of the state championship, losing once to Stockton and once to St. Ignatius of San Francisco. MacClean was a three-year starter at end on the football team. The 1925 team was undefeated, although tied three times, and the 1926 team overwhelmed the opposition, outscoring them 274-19. HOF research did not include the final game of that 1926 season, but it is believed by the NHS HOF that it was a playoff loss after Napa had won the North Coast District championship. MacLean joined his teammate Joel Coffield on the University of California, Berkeley freshman basketball and football teams, but no information was available to the HOF after that. Always a devoted fan of Napa High athletics, MacLean served as timer at Napa football games from the 1930s until the early 1990s.
