Seth Goldberg came to St. Paul’s School from Winston Middle School in Baltimore, where he taught last year, and McDaniel College, where he was the top assistant to Bob Flynn. A native of New Jersey and a graduate of Ithaca College, Seth also teaches physical education in both the Lower and Middle Schools. Seth began his coaching career at Bishop O’Connell High School in Northern Virginia with Joe Wootten, son of legendary coach Morgan Wootten. He coached at O’Connell for four years, helping the team finish in the USA Today’s top 20 in two different seasons. O’Connell also won the Virginia State Tournament two times, the national Alhambra Catholic Invitational Tournament two times, and the WCAC tournament once. While at O’Connell, Seth coached players who went on to receive scholarships from schools like University of North Carolina, University of Maryland, Loyola College, St. Joseph’s University, and Lehigh University, to name a few. After O’Connell, Coach Goldberg went on to work with 2004 McDonalds All-American Coach, Bob Flynn, at Cardinal Gibbons. He spent one year at Gibbons, where he was able to help many of the players develop, including one player who received a scholarship to play basketball at the University of Southern Mississippi State. The next year, Seth went with Coach Flynn to McDaniel College where they revitalized a struggling program, winning 9 games for the first time in 10 years, and bringing excitement back to the Men’s Basketball Program at McDaniel College. Seth Goldberg now brings his coaching experience to St. Paul’s. He believes that there is great potential and opportunity at St. Paul’s. “I can say we will be one of the hardest working teams in the league and we will improve every year.” Some of that improvement is already obvious, because of the commitment of Seth and his staff to working with the players in the gym to develop individual skills. Coach Goldberg believes that through individual development, the players will gain confidence in their ability, learn how to work hard, and be better able to help the team improve. Things are certainly looking up for the Crusaders’ Basketball Program!
