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.
