Coveleski coached football, basketball and track at Rehoboth High School with one of the smallest enrollments in the state. His 22 year record in football was 91-68-14, his 12 year record in boys’
basketball was 152-48 and nine year record in girls’ basketball was 91-31. His teams compiled an overall three-sport record of 334-147-14. Frank’s track squads won the Henlopen Conference title in
1964 even though the school had no track of its own. Coach Coveleski became Athletic Director when Rehoboth, Lewes and Milton High Schools consolidated into the new “Cape Henlopen” High School.
“Coach” was also the organizer and long-time chief of the nationally acclaimed Rehoboth Beach Lifeguards. His son, John, schooled by “ole dad”, became a state championship coach at Caesar Rodney High
School, and is a 2017 inductee into the Delaware Sports Museum and Hall of Fame. Frank was born in Union City, Pennsylvania.



Every inductee into the Delaware Sports Hall of Fame since our inaugural year in 1976 is represented on our website. Honoring the athletic excellence of these men and women is an integral part of Delaware sports history.
