Another honor for Mosier

 
Frank Mosier, who was a two-sport star at Trinity High School, will be inducted into the New Jersey Chapter of the National Wrestling Hall of Fame in ceremonies Sunday, Sept. 20 in Princeton, N.J.

Mosier will receive the Outstanding American award. He was a two-time National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics individual champion at Moorehead State University and helped his teammate become the first team to capture a national championship, winning the 1964 NAIA title at Spearfish, SD.

A three-time Northern Intercollegiate Conference winner, Mosier won NAIA titles at 167 pounds in 1964 and 1967. His portfolio also includes induction into the National Wrestling Hall of Fame (1984), the (Moorehead State) Dragon Hall of Fame (1990) and the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference Hall of Fame (2009).
