Howard Hoy

An all-around athlete at Frederick High School, lettering in three sports, Howard Hoy in 1965 was voted most valuable defensive back, named to the top 10 all-time Frederick High School basketball players, and led the track team as a 21-ft. long jumper and 6-ft. high jumper. He still found time to play Babe Ruth baseball, making the all-star team and batting .465. Hoy played with the Frederick Falcons and was named an all-league defensive back four times and the team’s MVP twice. A volunteer coach with the Sertoma Basketball League and an active member serving the American Legion Baseball Committee, he was a remarkably gifted athlete.
