Whitman – Whitman Hanson Regional High School announced today the hiring of Dan Rudolph as its new boys varsity soccer coach. Rudolph, who was a division 3 All American at Trinity College, guided Lexington High School from 2005 to 2011. During that time, his team rose to the number 8 ranking in the nation according to the ESPN poll and later went on to win the Division 1 North Sectional Title in 2009. He is a two time Middlesex League Coach of the year. Coach Rudolph will be familiar with the Patriot League after serving as an assistant coach with Hingham for the last 5 seasons.
“While Coach Rudolph’s success speaks for itself, what impressed us the most was his coaching style of teaching more than just his sport,” Whitman Hanson Athletic Director Bob Rodgers said. “It is clear that his ability to connect with his players and see them as people first will help move our program in the right direction.”
In addition to Rudolph’s impressive playing career at Trinity, he also played professional soccer for the Connecticut Wolves and Western Mass Pioneers.
“I couldn’t be more excited and grateful to be joining the Whitman-Hanson community with its history of excellence in athletics,” Rudolph said. “I am going to work alongside the coaching staff to build a culture of inclusion, contribution, and also a strong work ethic. August will be here soon enough and I will be prepared.”
Whitman Hanson competes in the Keenan Division of the Patriot League.
