The Weight Room


The Ron Mosca ’73 Weight Room

It is with great pride and pleasure that we are dedicating our newly renovated weight room to Mr. Ron Mosca ’73. Ron was a committed student-athlete who loved everything about Bishop Hendricken; his first love, as a student, and later as a teacher and coach, was football. When Ron returned to his alma mater after college, he volunteered to help out in any area he was needed. In addition to teaching computer courses, he became our Director of Technology, and coached sailing, baseball, and, of course, football. His teams were known for their defensive intensity, a trait that Ron displayed during his playing days. As the head coach of our Varsity football team, he led the program to six consecutive Super Bowl appearances, and three State Championships in a row. 

The Ron Mosca ’73 Weight Room will forever be known as a place where our students can work hard, encourage one another, and become better athletes. The facility will be available to athletes in every sport, and in the true spirit of Ron Mosca, a place where our players can train to represent our great school with passion and pride. While we mourn the loss of Ron at such a young age, we are grateful that due to the generosity of so many donors, his memory will live on in this magnificent facility. 

Rest in the Peace of our Risen Lord, Ron!

The Need

The best athletes deserve the best place to train.
Dedication, teamwork, strength and discipline….all begin in the weight room.
The road to winning begins in the weight room. 

Why Now? 

Bishop Hendricken High School is dedicated to providing its community with the best opportunities to grow, succeed, and thrive. The drive to renovate our weight room is just the latest example of our commitment to developing the total person – heart, mind, soul, and body.  

But, we need your help to lift this project off the ground! With our school’s continual growth, the current weight room is no longer adequate to meet our students’ needs. An update to the current weight room will allow for increased space, advanced equipment, and a cutting-edge facility. 


Our weight room and athletic training program is a critical catalyst for our boys’ athletic success, physical fitness, and overall well-being. Through training, our student-athletes will increase and improve in all areas of strength and conditioning to produce improved performance during practice and competition, while also reducing the likelihood of injury.  

Our boys will not only improve in strength and endurance, but also learn the value of preparation and determination. Without the hard work that is learned in the weight room, success cannot be earned on the field, in the classroom, or beyond. 

We hope you will add your name to the wall of donors for this project, cementing your legacy in Bishop Hendricken history, and helping to prepare our students to do the same!
