WILLIAM MONYER


SPECIAL CONTRIBUTOR


YEAR OF INDUCTION: 2006



Monyer was a fixture at area sporting events, including a streak of Hamilton-Steinert football games that spanned a quarter of a century. Monyer had many championship moments before passing away in 1998 at age 76. In addition to the holiday football games, he also loved soccer and baseball, two sports in which Hamilton Township has excelled in for a very long time.

Professionally, Skip was the Personnel Director at the N.J. Department of Health and the Executive Director of the Governorís Council on Physical Fitness and Sports. He later served a part-time post as athletic development specialist at Mercer County Community College. Other sports connections include stints as the National Police Athletic League Boxing Chairman, the National Amateur Athletic Union Boxing Secretary, and being a member of the Olympic Boxing Committee for the 1976 games in Montreal. He also was part-owner and president of the Trenton Colonials, an Eastern League basketball team; and he helped start the first Babe Ruth League in New Jersey.
