In a year during which Red Bank Regional High School has experienced several sport championships in football, girls’ cross country, girls’ swimming and girls’ tennis, it is only fitting that the 2015-2016 session concludes with the recognition of RBR’s Athletic Director Del Dal Pra as Jersey Sporting News’ pick for Athletic Director of the Year.

Del Dal Pra came to RBR eight years ago. During that time he has been able to establish feeder teams to the high school program with the Little Bucs Program. He succeeded, in partnership with parent groups, to finally put lights on the football stadium.  This year, he helped fulfill a long-standing school-wide need and opened a state-of-the art fitness center, something which will benefit the health of RBR students for years to come.

Press release from Red Bank Regional High School

Sports TV and radio celebrity Chris Carlin recently visited Red Bank Regional High School to meet with students of the Academy of Sports Medicine and Management (ASM&M), and to discuss his amazing career as well as the ins and outs of both sports radio and TV production.

Showing videos of his TV programs to the classroom, Carlin observed that TV employs many more people than radio, where the announcer is more of a one-man show. He informed the students, “My job requires doing about five to six hours of homework a day; as I have to know every piece of minutia for this industry.”

During the presentation, Carlin gave the some sage advice on pursuing a career in these very competitive industries, stating, “I can’t stress this enough, unless you have some incredible talent, you need to work really hard to get where you want to go.”
