•    Class of 1989 Inductees            


    Fred Carter Jr. - Class of 1960

    Fred was another outstanding two sport performer.  For his last two years at Glassboro, Fred was recognized as one of the top runners in the county, both in football and i8n track.  As mentioned, in football Fred was a top runner but it was as a middle linebacker for Coach Connelly that Fred was most valuable.  Fred’s defensive skills help shut down Paulsboro and lead the Bulldogs to an upset win by a 15-7 score.  In track Fred was a sprinter and a quarter miler.  Fred’s speed on the backstretch of the track always pulled him away from his competition and helped him become one of the top runners in South Jersey.


    Fred went on to Townson State College in Baltimore as a business major, graduated in 1965 and is an insurance agent in the Baltimore area.


    Caroline Cioffi - Class of 1984

    Caroline was one of the top female athletes ever to graduate from Glassboro.  She was a three sport performer, excelling in field hockey, track and softball.  She earned twelve varsity letters, four All Conference honors, All South Jersey Group I honors twice and finished second in the State Tournament as a shot putter two times.  Had Caroline concentrated on track, her coaches felt she could have easily become a State Champ, but Caroline opted to be the catcher on the softball team instead of competing on the spring track team.


    Caroline went on to Glassboro State College and was one of the top players on the Prof field hockey team.


    Gordon Lockbaum - Class of 1984

    Gordon was another outstanding three sport performer for the Bulldogs.  He earned All South Jersey honors in football, wrestling and baseball.  In addition, he earned six All conference honors, and was All State Group I in football and baseball.  Also a top student, Gordon was the Olympic conference Scholar-Athlete of the year.


    Gordon attended Holy Cross College in Massachusetts and became a National celebrity.  As a football player Gordon was twice the New England States Player of the Year, and twice finished in the top five in the Heisman Trophy balloting.  Gordon is presently pursuing a professional football career and will attend the Buffalo Bills training camp this summer.



    William "Skip" Thompson - Class of 1952

    Skip was an excellent two sport performer for Glassboro in the early 50’s.  He was a smooth running quarterback for Coach Smerin and a fine passer.  During his senior year the football team lost only to Woodbury and to Paulsboro.  But it was in baseball that Skip made his biggest contribution.  He was the top hitter on the team for two years capping his senior year with a .400 batting average.  He was also an excellent fielding first baseman.


    After high school, Skip attended Delaware Valley College in Doylestown, Pa. where he competed on the football team and was an agriculture science major.


    Claire Rudderow Turner - Class of 1937 - deceased

    In an era of limited sports teams for females, Claire was one of the top athletes at Glassboro High in the late 1930’s.  She played intramural field hockey and tennis but made her mark as a varsity basketball player.  Clair was the top scorer in her junior and senior year, averaging in double figures both years.  She was the captain of the team in her senior year and demonstrated outstanding leadership ability.
