In looking at the long history of sports at Dunkirk High School, few have come close to matching the accomplishments of Robert "Peanuts" Wisniewski.

One of the best examples of his domination was during the 1963-1964 school year when, as a senior, Wisniewski became the only Dunkirk athlete to ever captain the football, baseball, basketball and track teams in a single year.

During that magical stretch of time, Wisniewski led the Marauders in scoring on the gridiron as a halfback and place kicker and was named to the All-Southwestern Conference first team as a halfback. He also led Dunkirk's basketball team to a 15-5 record, scoring 358 points, was second in county scoring average with 18.1 points per game as the Marauders earned a berth in the sectional finals. Again, Wisniewski was named to the All-Southwestern Conference all-star team as a guard.
