A lot of people will argue that Harvey Boughner was the greatest all-around athlete who ever played at Trevorton High School. Backing up the argument are the undeniable statistics he compiled.
He earned 12 varsity letters at Trevorton from 1948 to 1952, meaning that he lettered in football, baseball and basketball from his freshman year on.
He went on to Bloomsburg State University, where he continued his excellent sports career. He lettered for three years in all three sports while with the Huskies. As an All-State Teachers College fullback he led the Huskies to their Division Championship in 1954. That spring he was an All State Teachers College First Team Catcher on the team that won the Division Championship,
After leaving Bloomsburg he played for the Trevorton A.A. and was a catcher for “Red” Barnhart, whom the club honored last year. He coached a year at Columbia Jr. High, Columbia, Pa.; then returned to Trevorton for eight years. While there he won three Tewin Valley Championships; and in 1960 led the Trevorton team to its only undefeated season…
From 1968 to 1974 he coached at Line Mountain. His seven year record was 42-19-1. In 1971 they were 9-0.
Harvey presently teaches science at Line Mountain High School.
