The 6-4 Bohnet scored 1,380 points and had 606 rebounds as a Bulldog men's basketball player from 1959-62. He presently ranks among the top 10 career scoring and rebounding leaders at Ferris State, which represents the highest placings of any Ferris State player other than current Hall of Fame member Bernie Kilpatrick from the pre-1965 era. Bohnet's 21.6 points per game average in his final campaign (1961-62) currently stands as the school's third-best senior class scoring figure while his team-high 23.2 ppg total in 1960-61 also ranks third among Ferris' all-time junior class performers. He led FSU to a 23-3 record and an NAIA National Tournament appearance in his final season under head coach Jim Wink after compiling a 17-5 ledger in the prior campaign. The three-year letterwinner from Lansing set a then-school record with 540 total points as a senior in 1961-62. His 286 rebounds in 1961-62 presently ranks as Ferris' third-best single-season mark. Bohnet's 549 career made field goals currently is listed 11th on the school's all-time chart while his 218 made baskets as a senior is the program's 10th-best single-season figure. He totaled a team-high 399 points in his sophomore season (1959-60) as FSU finished 15-6 overall and reached the NAIA National Tournament. Bohnet, who led Ferris in both scoring and rebounding as a senior, compiled the Bulldogs' second-best junior class rebounding average (11.6 rpg) in 1960-61. He was a two-time Michigan NAIA All-Star pick. Bohnet, who was also a high jump record holder for track coach Norm Bennett, played pro basketball with the Kansas City Steers of the ABL and the Grand Rapids Tackers. He presently resides with his family in Jerome, Mich.
