David Holmen inducted in 2013

DHolmen.pngDavid Holmen graduated from Upsala High School in 1954. Playing basketball, football, and baseball from 1951-1954, Dave earned all conference honors in basketball all three years and in football as a senior.   Dave’s play as an outstanding end on both offense and defense was recognized his senior year when he earned All State Honorable Mention honors for football in 1954.  Alternating between forward and center in basketball, Dave became Upsala’s first 1000-point scorer.  The significance of this achievement is magnified by the fact in 1954 teams played only 18 games per season, the game were four minutes shorter that today, and the three-point score was not yet in play.  

Dave and his wife, Shirley, live three miles west of Upsala on their well-known Cedar-Pine Strawberry Farm.  Dave is an outstanding supporter of Upsala High School athletics and can often be seen at many of our contests, especially basketball.
