This recognition has been reserved for graduates that have made a significant contribution to the school. Over his 13 years at Fr. Judge, the school enjoyed an all-male enrollment of over 1200 students. In his role as football coach, Tom received “Coach of the Year” recognition from the Philadelphia Catholic League and the Philadelphia Dailey News. Tom’s 2012 Fr.
