Bouyer, who was chosen as Ferris'
"Greatest Athlete" in 1970, is the only National Association of
Intercollegiate Athletics Champion in school history. The Georgia native
set an NAIA record with a time of 50.74 in the 440-yard intermediate
hurdles in 1970 and was a three-time NAIA track All-American. He was a
two-time (1969-70) NAIA runner-up in the 120-yard high hurdles as the
Bulldogs placed 11th nationally in the 1970 Championship on his 18 points
alone. He once set a school record by scoring 34.5 points at the 1970
Ferris Invitational. Bouyer held 10 indoor and outdoor Ferris hurdles
records and won 28 of 30 indoor individual events in 1969. He set an
indoor 440 record of 50.2 seconds the only time he competed in that event.
Bouyer, who earned 10 varsity letters, was a defensive back for Ferris'
first undefeated football team in 1968. A retired teacher and coach, he
owns an auto repair service in Battle Creek.
