Athletics Directory

The athletic director of Gulliver oversees the athletic program, including facilities, sporting events, scheduling and staffing. There are two athletic directors; one located at the Prep and the other is at the Academy - Marian C. Krutulis Campus.

Mark Schusterman

Mark Schusterman
Athletic Director

Mark Schusterman was born and raised in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Schusterman attended Baker University and Florida International University where he earned a B.A. in history. He began his coaching career in 1980 as an assistant to Killian’s legendary basketball coach, Bob Kaufman. In 1984, Schusterman was named head basketball coach at LaSalle High School and after one successful year at LaSalle, he moved to Gulliver in the 1985 school year as the head boys’ basketball and cross country coach.

The following year, Schusterman moved from cross country to softball and has coached the team ever since. During his first 15 years at Gulliver, he also coached football and taught world history. In 1996, Schusterman became Gulliver’s Middle School athletic director. During his tenure in that capacity, he expanded the program by adding lacrosse, water polo, boys' golf and sixth grade football and basketball. He led the girls’ softball team to state championships in 1998, 2001, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013.

Schusterman serves as FACA’s state softball chairman and is a member of the FHSAA softball advisory committee. He became the Prep athletic director in 2007 and was inducted into the Florida Athletic Coaches Association Hall of Fame in 2009.

R.C. Ganser

R.C. Ganser
Assistant Athletic Director

R.C. Ganser, originally from South Bend, Indiana, enters his tenth year as Assistant Athletic Director at Gulliver. Majoring in English, Ganser taught high school English full-time for many years before entering administration as the Director of Activities. He continues to teach English class each semester to keep his roots in the classroom.

Ganser has coached a multitude of sports. Using his college playing experience in baseball at Valparaiso University and his basketball experience at Indiana University South Bend, he has coached both sports for over 15 years in both head and assistant capacities at the high school level. Ganser also has coached high school girls’ softball, and volleyball and currently coaches  water polo.

“Coaching and teaching are essentially the same; only the venue is different. The lessons learned about life are the true subject matter,” says Ganser. 

Lazaro "Laz" Fernandez

Assistant Athletic Director for Middle School Sports

Lazaro "Laz" Fernandez joins the Gulliver Schools family after serving as the athletics director at Princeton Christian School in Princeton, Florida (near Homestead), and as the assistant women's basketball coach at Colgate University in Hamilton,N.Y.

Gross Hebrew Academy in Miami Beach and Princeton Christian School in Homestead. He was the boys’ basketball head coach at Miami Christian and the Hebrew Academy, and the girls’ basketball head coach at Florida Christian School in Miami. As a coach, Fernandez posted a career record of 106-52 and led his teams to four Florida High School Athletic Association (FHSAA) state tournament appearances. The Miami Herald named him its 2010-11 Class 4A-1A Girls Basketball Coach of the Year.

Before joining the high school ranks, Fernandez was the head student manager for men's basketball at Taylor University under Paul Patterson (in Upland, Ind.), assistant men's basketball coach at Barry University for Cesar Odio (in Miami Shores), and video coordinator at the University of Miami for head women’s basketball coaches Ferne Labati and Katie Meier.
