Meet Rudy Ruth shares his remarkable story

Meet Rudy Ruth shares his remarkable story.

Rudy Ruth shares his remarkable story with Zeke about going from the ultra-successful boys water polo coach at Wilson to becoming superintendent of the school district and then after retiring from that position, resuming coaching the team this year after Adam Filer stepped down as coach to spend more time with his family. As of this taping Ruth hadn't lost his touch, with the Bulldogs 7-0 in the Pennsylvania State Water Polo League and 21-6 overall. Ruth won nine state titles, four East Coast championships and more than 100 consecutive matches from 1992-96 during his first coaching stint with Wilson. Ruth also has been the state commissioner for high school water polo and is a member of the Berks County Aquatics Hall of Fame. Ruth tells Zeke about his family's shared passion for water polo. His wife has been with him every step of the way and is an assistant coach with the Wilson girls team. Their son Jack was two-time high school All-American in swimming and water polo and played four years of water polo at Princeton. Their daughter Molly was a two-time high school All--American in water polo and played at Maryland.
