Brian Walsh has joined the coaching staff at Schreiber High School as the assistant boys wrestling coach. Coach Walsh comes with a strong background. "I was born into a wrestling family, it's in my genes. My father coaches and so does my brother. My sister was a competitive gymnast."
Before coming to Port he coached in Glen Cove at the middle and high school level. He also coached in Locust Valley in the Wrestling Youth Program. Coach Walsh is a graduate of C.W. Post College where he earned his BA degree in psychology. Presently, he is attending Queens College working toward a dual degree in education and math.
When asked what are his hobbies and leisure time activities, he answered, "If I'm not playing sports, I'm watching them. Sports and athletics are in my blood. My father was president of the Oakneck Athletic Council in Locust Valley, which founded various sports programs. My father is my role model. We have been involved in sports together for as long as I can remember."
Coach Walsh said he will be working hard this season as there are many new team members. "We have 10 boys who are brand new to wrestling. My goal is to teach them the basics and for them to learn that there are no shortcuts, especially in wrestling. To be good in anything, it takes a lot of hard work!"
