Penn Charter assistant Eric Gregg – a backup goalie on the Philadelphia Barrage – has been named head coach at St. Joseph’s Prep.
Gregg, 30, replaces Dan Keating, who resigned in the summer after accepting a teaching position out of the city area. Gregg is the son of the late Eric Gregg, a former Major League baseball umpire and popular Philadelphia sports figure.
Gregg was the third-string goalie this year for the Barrage, the two-time champion of Major League Lacrosse.
Gregg takes over a program that has prospered in recent years and excelled under Keating. The Hawks placed second to state champion La Salle in the Catholic League, bowing to the Explorers, 6-5, in a thrilling league title game.
St. Joe’s (ranked seventh in the final Phillylacrosse.com Top 10 Poll) finished 22-5 last year, falling again to the Explorers in the quarterfinals of the final Eastern Pennsylvania Scholastic Lacrosse Association tournament. A number of key players return for St. Joe’s, which must vie with La Salle and the rest of the Catholic League for one District 12 playoff berth in the first year of the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association playoffs.
