John Donmoyer was an incredible District 11 boys' basketball coach with an overall career record of 624-423 over 40 seasons. His 1,047 varsity games coached was also a local record.
Donmoyer came to Moravian Academy after his “retirement” as a math teacher and basketball coach at Allentown’s William Allen High School. He had been at Allen for eight seasons as the junior varsity coach under the legendary J. Milo Sewards and 23 seasons as varsity head coach. In his 17 seasons as coach, the Lions qualified for the District 11 tournament with a .500 or better record 14 times. He coached six 1,000-point scorers during his tenure at Moravian.
Donmoyer, a member of the Lehigh Valley Basketball Hall of Fame, passed away in August 2014.
