Men's Basketball/Football/TrackHertzler played basketball and football and ran track for CU from 1928-1931. He lettered in all three sports for three consecutive years, giving him 9 varsity letters. In basketball, Hertzler played center and became a dominant defensive player, shot-blocker, passer and rebounder. He helped lead Cameron to multiple winning seasons and to the Oklahoma Junior College Championships in 1931. He went on to become a nationally-recognized collegiate and semi-pro basketball player (as there was no NBA at the time), alongside his best friend and fellow Class of 2010 inductee, Werden "Whick" Parrack. During his semi-pro career, he won awards such as Best Defensive Player East of the Mississippi River.
