the street stops here

The nation’s best high school basketball coach, Bob Hurley Sr., coaches at St. Anthony’s, an inner-city Catholic high school in Jersey City. St. Anthony’s doesn’t even have it’s own gym. For more than 50 years this tiny, impoverished school has provided a quality Catholic education to Jersey City’s low income families. While the school has won 24 state championships, it’s not a basketball factory. In 36 years all but two of Coach Hurley’s players have gone on to college and 150 have received full scholarships. The character, commitment and sacrifice of Coach Hurley (whose life is helping kids get out of poverty), Sister Alan (the heart and soul of the school), and the young men on the basketball team, will inspire you.
