Edward Rohs

Judith Estrine

Fordham University Press

In 1978, when he was 31, Ed graduated from Fordham University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in social science, and he was accepted at the Fordham's Graduate School of Social Service. This chapter discusses the challenges Ed Rohs faced as he grew from an institutionalized boy from whom little was expected to success as a licensed social worker with an advanced degree, holding jobs with steadily increasing responsibility and prestige. It describes his 17 years as a volunteer strength and conditioning coach for a Division 1 NCAA basketball program in New York City and his travels around the country with the team, staying in fine hotels and taking his meals in restaurants, he slowly learned how to negotiate the tricky landscape of polite society. This chapter provides a bird's eye view of the enormous pressure Division 1 coaches are under, and their full-time responsibility for the student-athletes they train. The chapter also describes the dark side of Rohs biological family.
