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.

Favorite sports memory
While at Beachwood my Junior year we took 2nd in the state as a team. That is a memory I will always cherish as we had a great close-knit team and we all worked very hard with each other to get there.
Why do you coach?
I got into coaching because of the great impact that my coaches had on me. I had some fantastic wrestling coaches while in High School who had a huge impact on me as a person. The sport and those coaches gave so much to me I feel it’s my duty to pay it forward to the next generation.
What attracted you to Holy Name?
Knowing how supportive the alumni and administration are for the student-athletes. It’s really special.
How are you staying active at home?
I’m fortunate enough to have a home gym that I am able to workout in almost every day. I also live right next to the Cuyahoga Valley National Park so I take my dogs on walks there frequently.
Is there anything else you would like to share with the Holy Name High School Community?
Thank you to those who are on the front lines of this current pandemic. To those of you fortunate enough to have some down time and more time at home with your family spend it wisely. Use this time to improve yourself and slow down a bit.
