Although no practices or games are on the schedule right now, Holy Name’s coaches are prepping for the seasons ahead. These men and women tirelessly prepare their teams for competition, while also teaching life lessons that will stay with their student-athletes long after the games, matches and meets are over. As you stay at home and look forward to watching the Green Wave compete once again, the Holy Name Athletic Department is happy to introduce you to the coaches leading our programs.

Sports played in High School

Favorite sports memory (as an athlete and as a coach)
My favorite memory as an athlete was going undefeated in NCL and winning the conference my senior year of basketball. Also, going on to play D2 Softball in one of the most competitive conferences in the country.
My favorite memory as a coach is getting a chance to come back and coach at my Alma Mater under Coach Luthman (who I played for in high school).
Why do you coach?
One of the biggest reasons that I coach is because it is my way to give back to the game that gave me so much. During my playing and coaching career, I have learned so many things that can be carried over into life and I want to help my athletes learn discover these same things. For example, Coach Luthman helped me find the confidence I needed to step out on the varsity basketball court as the best player I could be. I have carried this confidence over into so many different paths in life!
What attracted you to Holy Name?
The family culture is by far the biggest thing that attracted me to Holy Name. The sense of community is something I still feel almost 10 years after graduation!
How are you staying active at home?
I have been going on hikes in the Metroparks on the nice weather days!
