that won 52 of 72 games and that were coached by Mack Erwin, Mikytuck was a shortstop for one season before moving to third base for his junior and senior years. Serving as the team captain in 1960, which was the first Citadel baseball team ever to appear in the NCAA Regionals, Mikytuck is remembered for slamming two home runs in the 8-6 victory at Clemson en route to his All-Southern Conference citation. A career .340 hitter, Mikytuck, who hailed from Vineland, N.J, entered the Army and served as player/manager of the Fort Eustis baseball team. He spent his working career in sales and management, and passed away on Feb. 19, 2003.


Wayne Timmerman ’64
A member of The Citadel’s track and field teams in the early 1960s, Timmerman was a three-time letter winner and served as team captain his senior year. In April 1963, in a dual meet with the University of Miami, Timmerman established the

school record in the 100-yard dash (9.6 seconds, several tenths of a second from a world record). In the same meet, he tied the school mark of 21.3 seconds in the 220-yard dash. Timmerman also participated in the school’s seldom-defeated relay teams, including the quarter-mile (440 yards), half-mile (880 yards) and mile.

For his accomplishments, Timmerman was named to the All-Southern Conference team. He was also a consistent Dean’s List student and was a Distinguished Military Student.

After graduating from The Citadel, Timmerman earned his law degree from the University of South Carolina and served as editor of the South Carolina Law Review. He served in the Air Force and attained the rank of captain in the Judge Advocate Corps. Timmerman currently resides in the Tampa area where he is a circuit court judge.

Joe Missar ’65

The last Citadel football player to earn first-team all-Southern Conference recognition for offense and defense, Missar was a standout on both sides of

Joe Missar
the ball, playing guard on offense and linebacker on defense. A three-year letter winner who served as co-captain his senior season, Missar earned first-team all-state and Associated Press Honorable Mention all-America honors. Twice he was named the Southern Conference Lineman of the Week (for his play against Army, despite losing 34-0, and against Davidson). Missar also received several Player of the Week awards from the Southern Conference.

Shortly after his graduation from The Citadel, Missar, a native of Towson, Md., was commissioned and joined the Marines as a 2nd Lieutenant. He was killed in action on May 6, 1966, at Quang Nam Province in Vietnam.

Everette Sands ’93

A second-team all-American fullback in 1992 who was twice named first-team all-Southern Conference, Sands is the school’s second most-prolific rusher (3,926 yards) and scorer (204 points).

He surpassed the 100-yard rushing mark 16 times during his career and was a major force running between the tackles when The Citadel captured the Southern Conference championship in ’92.

A native of Conway, Sands, who started 47 consecutive games, averaged 5.29 yards per carry for his career that included 34 touchdowns. A four-time letter winner, he teamed with quarterback Jack Douglas to form only the second duo in school history to rush for 1,000 or more yards in a single season. During his career, he was never tackled for a loss while never missing a game or practice. Sands served as an assistant football coach at The Citadel for the 1999 and 2000 seasons, and currently coaches the running backs at Ohio University.

Charlie Baker ’71

Baker enters the Hall of Fame as an honorary inductee primarily for his work with the Alumni Football Association.

Charlie Baker
The AFA provides an avenue for past football athletes to promote and support the current football program. First organized in 1984, the AFA supports the program through a variety of ways and presents the annual “Blood and Guts Award” at the team banquet. Baker was instrumental in the formation of the organization and served as its president from 1984-2002.

A native of Raleigh, N.C., Baker was a fierce competitor on the gridiron from 1968-70, and teamed with all-American John Small to give the Bulldogs a tremendous linebacking corps. He owns Baker & Associates, a public relations and marketing firm in Charleston S.C.
