Fred Hill started his coaching career at the former Clifford Scott High School in East Orange in 1965, a few short years before he moved to Verona. His 1966 and 1967 teams won the New Jersey Group 2 Section 2 State Championships. In 1966, Hill’s first year as head football coach, his team won the inaugural Garden State Conference Championship and was also recognized as Group 2 Section 2 State Champs.

Recently, 22 former Clifford Scott baseball and football players reunited at O’Neil’s Restaurant in Verona. These players were instrumental in laying a foundation of success in Hill’s early career that helped Hill to become one of the most successful scholastic and collegiate coaches in New Jersey history. The reunion photo is today’s “Verona View”.

  1. I enjoyed playing for Fred Hill during my four years at Clifford Scott from 1961 to 1965 on their football team. He and Irwin Sloan were great coaches. Although our record wasn’t as great as in years to follow we won half of our games. He was a truly great man and wonderful baseball coach also for Montclair State and Rutgers university.
