RON SEBASTIANI


COACH


YEAR OF INDUCTION: 2013



Ron Sebastiani was many things for nearly 30 years at Steinert High School.

Sebastiani was the head athletic trainer from 1978 to 1994, as well as an award-winning coach.

In addition to helping countless Spartans get back on the playing field after their injuries, he also touched the lives of Steinert students in another way inspiring them to become athletic trainers. He is a charter member of what is now known as the New Jersey Athletic Trainers Society.

Sebastiani graduated from Notre Dame High and the then-named Trenton State College but soon would become a Spartan through and through.

Along with the teaching and the athletic training, Sebastiani also spent time as a guidance counselor and a coach.

Sebastiani helped start the ice hockey program at Steinert and the Spartans won their first official game in 1983. He coached hockey for nearly a decade.

He also had success as a golf coach, leading the Spartans to their first conference championship. Twice he was named Coach of the Year.

Personally, he has had success as a golfer, with multiple holes-in-one to his credit. A former marathon-runner, Sebastiani is an avid cyclist and a fitness instructor. He has umpired softball and baseball games and judged American Kennel Club competitions, notably for his favorite Border Terriers.

With Ruth, his wife of 36 years, Sebastiani has a daughter and son-in-law and a grandson.
