Jerry Mondalto 1969-1972 was one of, if not the greatest all around athletes ever to graduate from AHS. Former football coach and Athletic Director Doug Wood commented,” During Jerry’s junior and senior years, along with a host of very talented athletes surrounding him, Landry Stadium was filled with spectators at every home contest.” That hadn’t happened since the glory days of Coach Tazz, Tino Bertolini and Larry Moran, Jr.

Jerry broke numerous records in football and baseball and was an outstanding athlete that played basketball. Jerry was also captain of all three sports, earning eleven varsity letters.

In football, Jerry was a four-year starter for varsity. Captain his senior year; he rushed for 2,985 yards, scored 44 touchdowns and a career total of 292 points. He was a Boston Globe All Scholastic in 1971, Sunkist All American 1971, and All American in football. His football jersey #22 was retired. He was in Sports Illustrated “Faces in the Crowd”. Also, Massachusetts Italian Athlete of the Year.  He won many all-league and local media awards. Bill Burnham, former play by play announcer for Amesbury cable television was quoted, “Jerry was the most exciting player I’ve ever seen at AHS. He was fast, powerful and a terrific open field runner.” Athletic honors Football
