Hockey Player, 1975-77
Growing up playing hockey in Port Huron, Jerry Moses enjoyed many memorable experiences on and off the ice.
Maybe the best years of Moses’ hockey career were as a member of the SC4 hockey team. How about back-to-back trips to the nationals, a two-week trip to Sweden and First Team All-American honors?
“I had a great time at SC4,” said Moses, a 1976 Port Huron Northern graduate. “I got a great education and had the opportunity to play against some real good hockey competition.
“I went on to Michigan State after two years at SC4 and got my degree in civil engineering. At SC4, I got my core classes out of the way. There were some real good math classes taught by Dr. Brown.”
As a freshman with the Skippers, Moses, a center, earned All-American honors. The Skippers advanced to the nationals in Minnesota during the 1976-77 season, but failed to place. The following season, coach Tom Clark’s squad traveled to Lake Placid, N.Y. for the nationals.
“We had some very strong teams at the college,” Moses said. “I enjoyed playing for Tom Clark. He was an excellent coach, probably the best coach I ever had.”
As a senior at Northern, Moses played for the Fogcutter Junior team. He played one season with the program before it disbanded following the 1975-76 season.
Moses was a member of the Port Huron Secory Flyers Pee Wee travel hockey team that won the first Silver Stick championship by a squad from the Port Huron Minor Hockey Association. The team is in the Port Huron Sports Hall of Fame.
Moses lives in White Lake, Michigan, with his wife Roxanne (formerly Guizar) and their daughter, Carly. Their son, Zach, lives in Minnesota. The engineer for a national construction company continues to play hockey. He will be participating in a pond hockey tournament this month in Whitmore Lake.
