Dennis Hagaman

High School: Attended Pueblo Central H.S., graduating in 1962...Played on the Wildcats 1961 State Championship football team as a back and was named to the All-State second team...Scored 61 points during his career (10 touchdowns and 1 point after touchdown)

College: Went to Abilene Christian College, Abilene, TX... Played back on the Wildcats football team...Was nicknamed "Dennis the Menace"...His most notable exploits were: A 98-yard run from scrimmage against Arlington State; a 93-yard kickoff return against north Texas State; a 79-yard punt return against Lamar Tech...The first two broke ACC school records...Hagaman averaged 6.2 yards rushing, had a 35.6 average on kickoff returns and a 17.4 mean on punt returns...In the Arlington State game he rushed for 175 yards in 12 carries...An “all-the-way” threat every time he touches the ball, Hagaman has the speed of a sprinter (he’s done the 100 in 9.7), is strong for his size and has all the moves of a great runner...Hageman started the season in 1963 as a wingback but an injury to the No. 1 tailback Owen Morrison forced Coach Wheeler to move his to the running back slot...The switch must surely go down as one of Wheeler's best moves...“Dennis’ greatest asset is his poise,” says Wheeler.  "The ability to react under pressure.  This, accompanied by his speed and different moves, make him an exceptional back."..Hagaman was honorable mention Little All-American and also gained mention on the Mid-Bracket All-American team, aside from being named All-Texas College by the Fort Worth Star-Telegram...Died while in college.
