Moe Rubenstein

Coaching ∙ Ambridge

 

 

 

 

Electing Moe Rubenstein to the Beaver County Sports Hall of Fame gave the banquet chairman a king sized headache. Men who had played football and basketball for Moe during his 22 year coaching career at Ambridge High School wanted to buy all of the tickets to the banquet! Coach Rubenstein’s football teams were so successful that many people forget he also had an outstanding record as a basketball coach at Ambridge High. His cagers piled up a combined 260-99-1 record between 1929 and 1946, but Moe’s gridiron teams did even better, winning 146 games and losing only 45 between 1929 and 1950. The Bridger gridders won a WPIAL title and five Beaver County championships under Moe’s tutelage and, best of all, topped their traditional rivals Aliquippa sixteen times while losing only three. Moe Rubenstein graduated from Fifth Avenue High School in Pittsburgh and from Geneva College in 1928. In addition to his coaching and teaching duties at Ambridge High School, he also served as athletic director for many years. The football stadium at Ambridge High School was renamed in his honor. After his retirement from teaching in 1964, Rubenstein resided in Hollywood, Florida.
