Longtime Masonry Instructor Recognized for Outstanding Wrestling Career

A former longtime masonry instructor, Ken “Foxy” Moyer, will be inducted April 29 to the National Wrestling Hall of Fame through the Pennsylvania chapter. He also will be inducted in October to the Centre County Sports Hall of Fame.

Moyer started in the position in the late 1960s when the institute opened as the Centre County Vocational-Technical School, now called Central Pennsylvania Institute of Science and technology. According to records from CPI, Moyer retired in June 1993.

Lloyd Rhoades, treasurer of the state chapter for the National Wrestling Hall of Fame, said Moyer graduated from Bellefonte High School in 1953, and was a state champion wrestler in his senior year. He then attended Thaddeus Stevens trade college in Lancaster, where Moyer was reportedly undefeated in duals there for two years and had a record of 30-0-1.

He also was a National Prep Wrestling champion in 1955 and Mid-Atlantic AAU champion.

Moyer acted as a Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association referee for 20 years, and is also a member of the Bellefonte and District 6 Wrestling halls of fame.
