March 8, 1977
33 years ago today, Jonathon “Mox” Moxon, the legendary quarterback of West Canaan High School, was born into this world. He was a bit irreverent at times, but portrayed an eclectic mix of athleticism, leadership, determination and knowledge of the Oopty-Oop.
Mox was solely responsible for the dismissal of Bud Kilmer, who brought two state titles and 22 district championships to West Canaan high school.
Oddly enough, Dawson Leery also celebrates his birthday on March 8th.
