Evergreen Christian School is pleased to welcome Coach James Daniel III – the new Head Coach for our Girls Basketball Team. Girls interested in joining the team are invited to meet Coach Daniel and then work out together afterwards - Monday, Aug. 1 at 11:00 a.m. RSVP by July 30 to Athletic Director Joe Philogene at JPhilogene@ECSLoudoun.org.
Coach Daniel was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, and has coached for many years and at many different levels. He just finished his first year as the Head Women’s Basketball Coach at Timberlake Christian in Forest, VA. In this first year, he coached the team to the semi-final game and placed third in VACA State Tournament and ended the season 9-2. Before him entering the program at Timberlake Christian, he was the Head Women’s and Men’s Basketball Coach at The Fulton School in St. Albans, MO for a year. Coach Daniel spent two consecutive years at Holy Cross Regional Catholic School in Lynchburg, VA, where he built the program into a squad that had been a competitive year in and year out before their untimely close. After leaving Holy Cross, Coach Daniel coached at the most elite level of high school basketball with Bishop O’Connell High School as an assistant with the freshmen, JV, and varsity boys teams.
Coach Daniel believes in teaching, “I believe students should be taught the game of basketball rather than be coached. Being a student being taught in the classroom helps a student achieve academic excellence. The same goes for the game of basketball. An athlete should be taught the game of basketball to help them each achieve excellence on and off the court.”
Coach Daniel can be reached via email at JDaniel@ECSLoudoun.org.
