For nearly 30 years, Steinert High School was the beneficiary of Frank Lugossy's skillset which included teaching, coaching and administration.

Lugossy was an assistant football coach at Steinert from 1965-70 and piloted the Spartans' varsity squad from 1976-79.

He attended public schools in the township and was a multiple letterwinner in football and baseball before graduating from Hamilton High. He spent a post-graduate year at Pennington Prep where he earned letters in football and baseball.

While earning a degree in Health and Physical Education, Lugossy received multiple letters in football and lacrosse at Rutgers University. Excelling on defense, Lugossy was selected to play in the North-South All-Star Lacrosse Game at the U.S. Naval Academy and he earned Honorable Mention All-America honors.

He pursued a master's degree at The College of New Jersey. Meanwhile, he joined the teaching ranks, first at New Brunswick High (where he also coached freshman wrestling and baseball) and later on at Steinert.

Interspersed in his career was time as an instructor of Health and Physical Education at TCNJ where he also later was an assistant football coach. He was on numerous committees, served as adviser to several clubs and was Coordinator of Men's Intramurals and Recreation as well as Outdoor Education.

He also gained valuable experience during coaching stints at Rutgers (assistant with the football and lacrosse programs) and Princeton University (assistant in lacrosse). He continued his education by gaining Supervisor and Principal Certification at the then-named Glassboro State College.

He moved up the ranks at Steinert from Health & Physical Education Department Chairman to vice principal (1980-89) and principal (1989-98).
Lugossy has been a member of countless educational and athletic professional organizations including those connected to lacrosse, wrestling, basketball and soccer. He has been active in his community through membership in civic organizations including the Hamilton Elks and the YMCA (Board of Directors). He is a founding member of the Friends Making A Difference nonprofit group.

"I am proud to be a part of Steinert's rich athletic tradition and having the opportunity to work with so many great coaches and student athletes over the years," said Lugossy, who also is one of the founders of the SHS Athletic Hall of Fame. "It is especially rewarding to see so many of our athletes mature into contributing members of society."

With Eileen, his wife of 51 years, Lugossy has three sons and a daughter, five granddaughters and three grandsons and a great-granddaughter.
