Sociology, 1965

Owner, Knoebels Amusement Resort

I am the third generation to own and operate America's largest, free amusement park, Knoebels Amusement Resort. The park has been in the Knoebel family since 1926 and currently features two world-class roller coasters and over 50 rides. I studied Sociology at Lycoming; where I became the first NCAA Wrestling Champion in 1965, Middle Atlantic Conference Champion in 1964 and 1965, and was inducted into the Lycoming Hall of Fame in 1986.
