Tom Ross Alumni

Former Admiral Farragut Academy basketball and football star Thomas Ross Jr. ‘93N and the 1993-94 Prep A Championship Basketball Team will be inducted into Farragut’s Hall of Fame. The induction will be celebrated on April 29 at 6:30 p.m when alumni members and friends gather at the Lamp Post Inn (276 Atlantic City Blvd., Pine Beach, NJ 08741) for our Informal Gathering and Dinner.

Ross, a 1993 graduate from the North campus, was a New Jersey All State Prep First Team selection for both the basketball and football teams during his senior season. He still ranks among Farragut’s leaders for career points and rebounds, scoring close to 1,500 points and grabbing a little over 1,000 rebounds.

While serving as captain for both the basketball and football teams, he guided the basketball squad to a 16-5 record and the football club to a 6-3 mark, respectively, during his senior year. As a center on the basketball team, Ross was instrumental in helping Farragut win the Prep A Championship game in 1994. Ross even suited up in the prestigious All Shore Football Classic.

He attended the University of Cincinnati on a football scholarship.
