      Wesley was born in Culver and was graduated from the local high school in 1923 after starring gor three years in athletics.

      He was outstanding as a basketball guard, and his giant b uild and fine coordination made him a famed figure in this area. It was not uncommon to see Wesley stretch up and tip a ball out of the basket, which was allowed in those days, thus ruining many a sure goal by opponents. There was no question about Culver getting the tip when he was jumping for the ball, whil his unusual strength allowed him to make baskets from far out on the floor.

      Wesley was equally famed for his outstanding sportsmanship and as a result he was respected and honored by both players and alike.
