The New Frank Gagliano Athletic complex

We are proud to announce that the new athletic complex will be named after former RCHS Track and Field Coach Frank Gagliano. During his 9-year tenure at RCHS, Coach Gagliano built a track and ­eld program that rose to national prominence and set the tone for athletic success and traditions that the RCHS community would enjoy for 57 years following his leadership.  His Lions notably captured 3 Penn Relay Championship of America titles, 3 NJ State Indoor Track titles and a State Cross Country Championship.  Coach Gagliano continued his coaching career with success at Manhattan University, Rutgers University, Georgetown University,  The Nike Farm Team and as head coach of the NJ NY Track Club.

Introducing The Bobby Hoffman Championship Track

Part of the new athletic complex, The Bobby Hoffman Championship Track will be named after Bobby Hoffman, a dedicated, loyal and hard-working RCHS student-athlete who was a 12-time varsity letter winner and member of Coach Gagliano's Cross Country and Indoor Track teams. He ran on two Penn Relay Championship of America teams and was named the Union County Scholar Athlete during his 1965 senior year.   After graduation, Bobby became the ­first RC student to attend the US Military Academy at West Point. After serving a tour of duty in Vietnam where Bobby led the last US Rangers combat mission of that war, he continued to serve his country in the military for 20 years, retiring as a Lieutenant Colonel.  After retirement, Bobby worked for FitForce,  a company that assessed the fitness levels of police forces across the United States and designed the police fitness programs. Bobby passed away this past summer after a courageous battle with brain cancer and had the distinct special honor of being buried at West Point.
