Known as “Hek,” Wakefield was a two-way standout for McGugin’s Commodores.

In 1924 was named First Team All-America by INS, Lawrence Perry, Outing and Billy Evans publications.

In 1922, Wakefield helped the ‘Dores to a 8-0-1 campaign. He was a starter in the inaugural 0-0 game in Dudley Field against Michigan.

Wakefield starred on teams that went 26-5-4.

As injuries mounted in 1924, Wakefield was named captain. He quickly proved worthy of the honor, scoring twice in a win over Auburn, then defeating Georgia Tech with a 37-yard drop-kick field goal.

In the finale, he played every minute in a 16-0 win over Minnesota.
