Sports Legend

Richard (Dick) Moser

Dick was a three sport star at Hamburg, who was one of the fastest to ever wear the purple and white. His first varsity football game was a testament to his speed, averaging 15 yards per carry from the line of scrimmage. Dick mentions the win over East Aurora 41-27 in 1948, as one of his finest high school sports memories. While a member of the track & field team, Dick ran the anchor leg for the 1/2 mile relay. He is still ranked number 6 fastest in the 100 dash and ranked number 3 all-time in the long jump. In 1948, Dick won the Parker Memorial Track trophy, which is given annually to the top Hamburg Track and Field-Athlete of the Year. He was also twice the recipient of the American Legion outstanding athlete award, which he won during his freshman and senior year. After graduating from Hamburg, Dick served his country in the U.S. Army before graduating from Bowling Green State University in 1959. Today, Dick is retired from a career as a District Sales Manager for Proctor and Gamble Pharmaceuticals.
