Dom Jacobetti Jr.
Still the holder of the U.P. record for career points in boys basketball (2,140 ), Dominic Jacobetti Jr. was a four-year standout at Negaunee St. Paul.
A starter his entire career, Jacobetti was named allconference four years in a row, All-UP three years in a row and All-State three years in a row. While playing for St. Paul, he helped lead the team to three district titles, two U.P. titles and in 1963, to the Class D State Final game, where they lost to Britton-Macon, 59-58. In 1965, his team lost to Pickford in the State Quarterfinal, but after the game a reporter came up to Jacobetti to tell him that he had broken the U.P. scoring record. He had no idea that he was even in the running.
Jacobetti would go on to be a basketball standout at Northern Michigan University, playing for legendary coaches Stan Albeck and Glenn Brown.
