Alumni Spotlight: Tom Fameree

The focus of this week’s “Alumni Spotlight” is Luxemburg-Casco graduate Tom Fameree ’80, who participated in football, cross-country, basketball and track during his distinguished high school sports career.

Following high school, Fameree attended St. Norbert College in DePere, where he graduated in1984. A converted quarterback, he played flanker as a freshman in college and then moved to fullback his senior year. His favorite memory was participating in the Lombardi Classic at Lambeau Field against Fordham University. After obtaining his degree at St. Norbert, Fameree received his Certified Public Accountant license and worked in Milwaukee for a few years, though he has moved back to the Green Bay area since.

As far as his fondest high school memory, winning the State Championship in the 880 race his junior year in track ranks first. Listen here as Fameree recounts what was going through his mind while he was crossing the finish line:

Fameree recalls Sturgeon Bay’s Jim Mahaley as the toughest personal matchup during his basketball career at Luxemburg-Casco. In Fameree’s senior year, the Spartans – despite being ranked second in state all season behind Xavier in the Class B Division – were knocked off in the WIAA Regionals by Sturgeon Bay.  

Fameree shared a couple pieces of advice for current high school athletes: Don’t take sports for granted, and give it your all.

Fameree’s sporting career didn’t end at St. Norbert, however. In one of his recent accomplishments, he qualified and ran in the 2006 Boston Marathon. He was proud and thankful his family was there to share his experience. Fameree and his wife, Patti, reside in DePere and have three adult children.  He currently works as a commercial loan officer for Wells Fargo in Green Bay.
