Ron was an all State Football player in 1963-1964 as an End and a Punter for the Tornadoes. But he was more than just a football player: he was also an All State nominee in basketball and finished second in the State in the discus throw two years in succession.
He still holds the Mount Camel High School Stadium record for the discus throw. While at Mount Carmel he was captain of the basketball team, co captain of the track team and winner of the Babe Ruth Award which in those days symbolized the school’s Outstanding Athlete.
“Washie” was recruited at West Point, where he played one year before transferring to Bucknell. He had tryouts with both the Giants and Browns as a Punter in 1971 and 72.
He has been just as successful in the business world as on the field of play. He presently heads the Ron Lewis Automotive Group, a Western Pennsylvania organization which represents six automobile dealerships and employs more than 200 people.
He is married to the former Barbara Moratelli of Mount Carmel. The couple has two daughters, Gwen a Junior at Bucknell and Romi, a seventh grade student.
