Today we remember Gloucester County Sports Hall of Fame legend Ray Rollins, who was inducted into the HOF as a member of the Class of 1984.
Ray was a multi-sport athlete at the old Cape May High School who graduated in 1939. He went on to coach several sports at Glassboro High School and served as the school’s long-time athletic director.
In retirement, Ray and his family operated a sporting goods store in Pitman. Ray was elected to the following Halls of Fame: Gloucester County HOF, South Jersey Coaches HOF, and the Glassboro High HOF. He served as a long-time committee member for the GC Sports Hall of Fame.
Ray and his late wife Lida lived in Pitman for nearly 50 years. They raised three children and had 9 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren. Ray passed away in January 2004.
