LANCASTER, Pa. – Former Franklin & Marshall men's golfer King Knox '65 is set to be inducted into the 2014 Susquehanna Valley Chapter of the Pennsylvania Hall of Fame.
King was inducted into the Franklin & Marshall Athletic Hall of Fame in 1975 and is considered one of the top golfers to ever compete at F&M. He was the Middle Atlantic Conference (MAC) Champion during his senior season in 1965 and was twice named the program's Most Valuable Golfer. At the national level, Knox placed third in the NCAA College Division Nationals in 1965 and was named to the NCAA College Division Coaches All-American Team as one of just 10 golfers to earn the honor.
Also inducted into the Lancaster Golf Association Hall of Fame in 2006, he won the Lancaster Amateur Tournament a record eight times, including victories in eight-consecutive years (1968-72). Knox qualified for two United States Golf Association Junior Amateur Championships (1958, 1960) and three USGA Amateur Championships (1964, 1965, 1972), winning the qualifying medal in 1972.
The induction ceremony is set for Saturday, May 3, at the Susquehanna Fire Company in Columbia. The Susquehanna Chapter of the Pennsylvania Sports Hall of Fame is one of 29 regional chapters across the state. Each chapter has its own Hall of Fame to coincide with the statewide Hall of Fame.
