TERRY McCARTY


SPECIAL CONTRIBUTOR


YEAR OF INDUCTION: 2019



"Terry McCarty is the most generous person I have ever known," SHS varsity football coach Dan Caruso said. "...The man bleeds Steinert green. He has been a mentor to me since I took the reins of Steinert football as a 27-year-old kid.

"He has shown me what community and selflessness is truly all about. He has helped teach me that wins and losses happen and X's and O's aren't as important as the relationships you build with your players and community.

"He instills a sense of pride in our players and makes them realize that they are a part of something greater than any one individual. Terry shows them and me every day how to lead by example and how at the same time be a true team player."

Terry's noteworthy contributions include donating money to various programs throughout the school, donating time and money for many charitable events, coming in to speak with business classes at Steinert, funding scholarships for players, and his involvement with the Boy Scouts of America.

McCarty has been a volunteer coach with Steinert Fooball since 2008. His current assignment is varsity quarterbacks coach and running backs coach and JV Offensive Coordinator. He has also been heavily involved with youth sports at the Hamilton YMCA.

Terry was a student-athlete at Steinert from 1979-83. He earned two letters in football and three in swimming and he received all-county recognition in both sports.

He continued his education at The College of New Jersey (bachelor's degree in accounting) and then went to Rider University (master's degree in business administration).

A father of two (daughter Lindsay and son Daniel), McCarty has three granddaughters. He is the Senior Vice President/Director of Credit Management for Institutional Healthcare and Higher Education USA for TD Bank.
