Notre Dame High School coach John McKenna has been inducted into the National High School Strength Coaches Association Hall of Fame. In June, McKenna attended the NHSSCA Hall of Fame induction ceremony in Tennessee.

Coach McKenna is in his 20th season as the strength and conditioning coach at the Lawrenceville school, and has been a football coach for more than 36 years. In his full-time role at Notre Dame, he trains all physical education classes and athletic teams in season and out of season. He is also the moderator of Catholic Athletes for Christ.  

In addition to this induction, McKenna was the first strength coach inducted into the New Jersey Coaches Hall of Fame and just recently was honored by the National Football Foundation for his contribution to amateur athletics. He was also inducted to the Sports Faith Hall of Fame in Chicago.

McKenna has trained professional, college and high school athletes. He has also developed the popular Building Your Foundation Youth Program for the development of younger athletes. He was recently named to the board of directors, Region 8 Northeast, which comprises 11 states.
