George Moyer

Football (Inducted: 1985-86)


George  Moyer

George "Sammy" Moyer was a key figure in the Leopards' last undefeated football season, in 1940, when they were 9-0 with a No. 18 national ranking "Sammy wasn't too big, but he was shifty," commented long time Easton Express sports editor Parnell Lewis. "He had that Pete Rose-type determination."

As a sophomore in 1938, this Phillipsburg, NJ native starred in his first home game by scoring one touchdown on a 65-yard run and another on a leaping, one-handed pass reception. And his 34-yard TD run in the Lehigh- Lafayette rivalry later that year provided the game's only scoring. It's impossible to document, but the 5'9", 173-pound Moyer may have had more touchdown runs of 40 of more yards than anyone in the school's history.
