Jeff Loudon was an outstanding football and basketball player at Napa High. He helped pace the 1959 football team to the first undefeated, untied season in the school’s history. As a defensive back, he intercepted three passes in one game. He punted for a 44.6 yard average. As a senior in 1960, he was the starting quarterback and his 61.9% pass completion record still stands as the school’s best. He passed for 10 touchdowns, ran for three more, kicked PATs and punted for a 45.3 yard average. He made the All-Opponent teams of Riordan and Pittsburg High Schools and was nominated for the North-South All-Star game. He was the Most Valuable Player on the 1960 football team. As a basketball player, Loudon was an outstanding scorer and shooter. He averaged over 15 points a game as a junior, and over 16 per game in his senior year. His 83% and 84% free throw shooting in those two years surely makes him one of the best charity tossers ever to play for Napa High. It should be noted that Napa was out of the North Bay League during Loudon’s career so All-League honors were not available to him. Loudon continued his basketball career at the University of Santa Clara, where he averaged 14.5 points per game for the 1961-62 freshman team and was chosen as Most Valuable Player on the team.
