Roger Wehrli (born November 26, 1947) is a former National Football League cornerback who played his entire 14-year career with the St. Louis Cardinals from 1969 until 1982. He was a seven-time Pro Bowler after playing college football at the University of Missouri, where he was a consensus All-American and a first-round draft choice by the Cardinals in 1969. He was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2007. Wehrli was born in New Point, Missouri. His parents were teachers and his father was a school district superintent. They enrolled Roger in school at the age of 5. As a result, he started his freshman year of high school at the age of 13. Missouri Hall Of Fame Coach Richard Flanagan's (HS Coach @ KC) said of that Wehrli was the best player he ever coached--that when he got the ball he could move like no other and could anticipate the other players move before he did.
