Sep. 25—When Mickey Mohner's college playing days were over, he left Wayne State as one of its most decorated quarterbacks.
A decade later, Mohner is getting his due at his alma mater.
The Harvey football coach and athletic director was recently named a member of Wayne State's Athletics Hall of Fame. Mohner will be honored during a Oct. 6 dinner ceremony for Wayne State's 2023 class.

Mohner's biggest impact on the football field are his 30 wins under center — most in school history — and leading his team to the 2011 Division II national championship game. He was a member of the Wayne State football program from 2009 to 2012.
He finished his career with 7,287 career passing yards and 55 touchdown passes and a passing efficiency rating of 131.2.
As a freshmen, he started the last seven games of the season and was voted the team's Offensive Rookie of the Year. The next season, he was named the starter and against Ashland he threw five TD passes, which tied a school record.
As a junior in 2011, he set a Wayne State single-season mark with 2,799 passing yards, 25 TD passes and QB efficiency rating of 144.2. Against Lake Erie College, Mohner — a Painesville native — set a single-game passing yards record of 439.
Mohner's 44 consecutive starts at QB is another school mark at Wayne State.
At Harvey, Mohner was a record-setting QB who is the program's all-time leader in passing yards (4,656) and TD passes (47).
