Robert Lundeen was one of two Lundeen brothers inducted into the 1998 class of Hall of Famers. His brother Craig is also a member. Robert Lundeen excelled in football and baseball during a period when Napa was dominant in both sports. In football, Lundeen was a wide receiver and defensive back. According to a Vallejo Times Herald article, he caught 34 passes for 516 yards as a junior and 34 passes for 520 yards as a senior. He was First Team All-MEL offensive end and Second Team All-County defensive back as a junior. As a senior, he was All-MEL, All-Region and All-County as a member of the Napa Indian MEL championship team. He played in the 1982 High School East-West game and in 1985 was selected as a member of the 10 Year All-MEL Team by the Vallejo Times Herald. In baseball, Lundeen excelled as an outfielder and power hitter. As a junior, he was All-MEL, All-Region, All-County, and MVP of Napa High. He repeated all of those honors in his senior year. In one game against Fairfield, Lundeen hit a three-run homer and two-run double in one inning, and a solo homer later in the game. Newspaper articles about his sensational catches as an outfielder are filled with superlatives about his speed and ability to make diving catches.
