David Andrew Wysong ’59

Mr. Wysong played football, basketball, and baseball at Episcopal, winning eight varsity letters in just three years.

The summer 1958 edition of the Chronicle described Mr. Wysong as “the finest quarterback seen on the Hill in the last decade.” He was co-captain of the football team, where he started as quarterback for two years and was voted All-State as a senior.

He was also co-captain of the basketball team, where he played guard and forward and earned All-State honors.

On the baseball team, Mr. Wysong was a three-year starting catcher with a .400 batting average. As team captain he garnered the attention of major league scouts, and was named the Alexandria Gazette Baseball MVP his senior year.

In addition to his athletic accomplishments, Mr. Wysong was a Monitor and Waiter, as well as a member of the Missionary Society, Choir, and Glee Club. As a graduating senior he was awarded the Rinehart Medal for Athletic Worth.

Mr. Wysong considers himself lucky to live near Episcopal and to be able to keep up with the School’s athletics over the years. “I couldn’t wait to get back to school every year to play sports,” he says. “I had a great experience. I love the School, both then and now.”
