Rob Cersosimo, who has been Conard's head football coach since 1984, will officially join his father-in-law (and predecessor as Conard's coach) Bob McKee as a member of the Connecticut High School Coaches Association Hall of Fame on Nov. 15.
Last Saturday, Cersosimo, McKee, current and former Conard football players, fellow coaches, Conard administrators and teachers, and dozens of friends and family members were on hand at the UConn vs. Temple football game at Rentschler Field where Cersosimo and the eight other Hall of Fame inductees were honored at halftime.
Many of those in attendance wore shirts honoring Coach "C," which the Cersosimo family has been selling to raise money for a scholarship fund.
In addition to coaching football at Conard, Coach "C" was also the head coach of wrestling (1986-88; 1996-2001) and boys' tennis (1973-76; 1981-87; 1990-91). Last year he also teamed up with his daughter-in-law Megan, the head girls lacrosse coach, to coach the freshman girls lacrosse team.
Father-in-law Bob McKee, who coached football, wrestling and baseball at Conard between the years of 1957-1984, was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1982.
