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.”
