Even though he was only 43 years old when he was inducted into the Beaver County Sports Hall of Fame, LaMont Boykins still knew how to make a Hall of Fame acceptance speech. The Ambridge native had already been enshrined in the Westminster College Hall of Fame and the Westmoreland County Hall of Fame. While attending Quigley Catholic High School, LaMont lettered in football, basketball, and baseball, then transferred to Kiski Prep School in Saltsburgh to continue his three sport career. At Kiski, LaMont received the Bob Mathias Award as the schoolís Outstanding Junior Athlete, and as a senior received the Jacob Ziegler Award as the Most Outstanding Scholar Athlete. He was also captain on the football and basketball teams as a senior. LaMont moved to Westminster College, where he became one of the most prolific wide receivers in Titans history: a four year letter winner, he earned Small College All American as a junior and senior, and graduated as the schoolís all time leader in catches (134) and yards per catch (16.1). That summer (1983), LaMont signed a free agent contract with the NFLís Philadelphia Eagles. After that, LaMont returned to school and earned a mastersí degree in business administration and had a successful career as a executive in the automotive industry. LaMont also served as a youth coach in basketball, baseball, and soccer.
