Health & Physical Education Teacher; Varsity Baseball Head Coach, Robbinsville High School

What teacher/coach had the biggest influence on you as a student & why?:

Raritan football coach Anthony Petruzzi, who Kinsella served under as an assistant. Coach P taught me that coaching is more than Xs and Os. That building relationships and character can go a long way. Part of what I’m trying to build here at Robbinsville is a direct reflection of what he does at Raritan.
