Maurice “Moe” Rubenstein (1905–2001) was a legendary high school coach in Ambridge for nearly a quarter century, starting in the late 1920s. He simultaneously led the football, basketball, and baseball teams at points in his career, as well as assisting the track and gymnastics departments and serving as athletic director. Various tallies of his record differ by a few games, but all agree on his high winning percentage and frequent titles. According to his obituary in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, his football teams went 146-32-10 and won a WPIAL title in 1932 with a 9-0 record, his basketball teams went 260-99-1 with six section titles, and his baseball teams won two section titles.
