Paul Vogt participated on four varsity teams during his career in football, basketball, baseball and track. He was the football team captain in 1974 who played multiple positions during his career including quarterback, running back, linebacker and defensive end. One of his biggest games was against York in his senior year where he rushed for over 100 yards. On the baseball field, he was called up to the varsity team as a freshman in 1972. A shoulder injury forced him out of the sport of baseball at a young age so he moved on to track where he participated in the long jump and triple jump. It was on the basketball court that this athlete’s talents really shined. With a career total of 858 points, this was fourth all-time when he graduated and is currently ranked sixth all-time in our school’s history in boys’ basketball.Like baseball, he was called up to the varsity basketball team as only a freshman. He made his presence known that year in the Keshequa game where he scored 15 points and was the team’s leading scorer. As a sophomore, he averaged 10 points and 12 rebounds per game while helping lead the team to a record of 14-6. During his junior year, he averaged 15 points per game on a team that finished 13-8. In the sectional quarter finals, this athlete scored 30 of the team’s 50 points in route to a 50-40 victory over Bloomfield. In the next round, the team lost a very close sectional semi final game by two points to Red Creek. As a testament to this athlete’s commitment, he played this semi-final game with the flu and still managed 14 points. His senior year was another stellar one. He again averaged 15 points and 10 rebounds per game to lead the team to the Livingston County title with a regular season record of 17-1. At the start of sectional play, he was pictured in the Section V handbook under the “Stars to Watch” section. And what a star he was. His performance led the team to the sectional finals where he was named to the Section V Class C All-Tournament team. The 1974-75 team finished with an impressive final record of 20-2. Still to this day, 20 wins in one season is the most wins a Mount Morris varsity boys’ basketball team has ever had. This man’s talents allowed the basketball team to compile a record of 47 wins and only 16 losses during his sophomore through senior seasons. As you can see by his rebounding statistics, he was equally as strong defensively as he was offensively.
