“The minute you become complacent, it’s all over.”

—Coach Rich Hansen

Saint Peter’s Preparatory School (or simply “Prep”) is New
Jersey’s only Jesuit high school. A community of learners that
seeks to find God in all things, Prep prides itself on molding
young men of competence, conscience, and compassion.
The school has created an iconic football program that is
annually ranked as one of the best in America, and is the
subject of Richard Corman’s Prep: The Spirit of a High School
Football Team
.

Corman’s photographs document the collective journey of
Prep’s football team, the Marauders, through the 2007–
2008 school year. With a cinematic flair, he presents striking
shots of the team in action, quiet landscapes of the fields of
play, candid snaps of passionate fans, and tender portraits
of individual players. Peppered throughout are quotes from
their fearless leader, the remarkable Coach Rich Hansen,
who holds the record for the most wins in the school’s
history. It all comes together to reveal a poignant story
about a group of young men playing football and experiencing
adolescent life before our eyes, a story of “men for others”
in the true Jesuit tradition.

As a portrait photographer, Richard Corman has worked
with actors, writers, designers, painters, musicians, and a
roster of athletic stars that includes Jackie Joyner-Kersee, Eli
Manning, Muhammad Ali, Michael Jordan, Derek Jeter, Lance
Armstrong, and Cal Ripken, Jr. Corman is the author of Glory:
Photographs of Athletes
(William Morrow & Company, 1999)
and I Am Proud: The Athletes of the Special Olympics (Barnes &
Noble, 2003). A native New Yorker, Corman graduated from
Hunter College with a degree in art history and psychology.
His work is represented by ArtMix Photography.

Joe Paterno is the head coach of Pennsylvania State
University’s college football team, a position he has held
since 1966. An award-winning and Hall of Fame coach,
Paterno has won more football games against teams currently
in NCAA Division I-FBS than any other coach in history.

Yolanda Cuomo has collaborated for over two decades with
artists including Richard Avedon, Paul Simon, Twyla Tharp,
and Laurie Anderson. Her studio designed and produced the
worldwide exhibition and book Diane Arbus Revelations, the

her BFA from The Cooper Union in New York and teaches at
New York University.
