John Mooney , one of the finer men you could ever hope to meet, retired in June 2004 after 50 years in the Catholic school system. He was Bonner's athletic director and the CL baseball chairman. He earlier gained fame as the baseball coach for 39 years at St. James, in Chester, which closed in June 1993. Below are several stories about John. Hope you enjoy them. Below the stories we'll post comments from friends/admirers about John. Send them to silaryt@phillynews.com. Thanks!

"I cry easily," Mooney said. "If nobody's there as I come off the field, I'll be all right. I'd like to see my old players come back (for the finale), but at the same time, it would make me feel sad." On June 5, 2 p.m., at Glen Mills, Mooney will be an assistant coach in the Joseph J. Barrett (Delaware County) all-star game. The program, he said, will have a list of every player he has coached at St . James . "It's one way," he said, softly, "to thank them all."

To describe John Mooney is to describe the model that every man should be. Mr Mooney is hard-working, dedicated, generous, kind, and a role model for everyone. Over the past 10 years, Mr. Mooney has done nothing short of what can be called remarkable. Mr. Mooney does everything at Monsignor Bonner. He serves as the athletic director, assistant principal for student affairs, and does various tasks in and around the school that he shouldn't even have to do. The school will never be the same without him and he will always be remembered. Mr. Mooney's passion in the classroom, in athletics, and in life in general will never be matched. He taught his students with the greatest enthusiasm and wanted to reach every single one of them in some way. I had Mr. Mooney for English freshman year and although i did not give my all in that class and still regret it to this day, i realize the importance of the things that Mr. Mooney was teaching us, not just about English but about life as well. His passion sports especially baseball will always be well-known. He is the greatest coach in the history of the Philadelphia Catholic League and his legend will live forever. The man is St. James Catholic High School. I would just like to personally thank Mr. Mooney for everything he has done for me during my 3 years at Bonner and for the 10 years of amazing service that he provided for everyone at Bonner.

I like to find another word to describe John Mooney. I had the pleasure of working with John at St. James under Ray Gionta. The man is a tireless worker. I can remember John lining the football field at Chester High after a snow storm for our Thanksgiving Game. He painted the lines blue and white for St. James, black and orange for Chester. I thought that was awesome. John knew what to say to someone in victory and defeat. He always made you feel like you were important. John stories were a joy to listen to. He spoke from the heart when talking about his beloved St. James. John made all us coaches feel like we were "Bulldogs". I am proud and honored to have his acquaintance. Enjoy your retirement, John.

When I started coaching at Cardinal O'Hara in I heard about St. James and Mr. Mooney. I was young and thought who the heck this guy was. I had been an assistant under Phil Fidalgo in 1974 and the first time we played St. James I became acquainted. He went about his coaching duties with no flair no hollering or screaming just controlled all the time. His team was well prepared and did all the little things that day. They won. I became the varsity coach the next season and over the next 25 years I had the privilege of being associated with John Mooney. He was always a gentleman.

Mine would be scribbled on a piece of paper and John's would be neatly typed on a card. After I left coaching I would see John at games and I would go over and we would talk about "the good old days. I really enjoy that. I thank John for being an influence on me as I was beginning my coaching journey. I remember John working at a summer camp with a few of us. I took my son who was about 11 at the time. he asked who was that older coach. I said that is MR. Mooney and listen to everything he says. On the way home he said to me "he knows a lot about baseball. I said He knows a lot about things that are a lot more important than baseball. Thanks for all you have done. God Bless You.

John Mooney, longtime coach and vice principal at St. James who is now athletic director at Monsignor Bonner in Drexel Hill, declined to talk about Brugger yesterday.
"Based on what I read in the paper, I am not going to comment one way or the other on this," said Mooney, who worked with Brugger for years.
"It's probably one of the few times in my life I've kept my mouth shut, but I'm doing it this time," Mooney said.
