Daniel Scheck
Assistant Volunteer Coach
Division 1

 James C. Gentle Head Coach [Brian Gill](https://pennathletics.com/staff.aspxstaff=161) has announced the hiring of Dan Scheck as a volunteer assistant coach for the Quakers, focusing on the goalkeeper unit for the University of Pennsylvania men's soccer program. Scheck will join Gill and assistant coaches [Peter Lowry](https://pennathletics.com/staff.aspxstaff=162) and [Jonathan Delano](https://pennathletics.com/staff.aspxstaff=363) for the 2018 season.  "We are really excited to have Dan join our program for this upcoming season. He is a young, ambitious coach who, along with the rest of the coaching staff, will help to further develop the student-athletes in our program here at Penn. On a daily basis, Dan will help assist with all aspects of our program, but will spend a bulk of his time working to develop our goalkeeper corps. Having attended and played his college soccer at nearby Temple, Dan has a good feel for the dynamic here in Philadelphia and has a firm understanding of the Penn community. Two seasons on Ray Reid's staff up at UConn has undoubtedly given him some good insight on how a high level soccer environment functions." Scheck wrapped up his second season with the Huskies in 2017 as Director of Soccer Quality Control, assisting with ticket sales, match promotions, and fan engagement. Last fall, Scheck's efforts helped aid the Huskies to an average attendance of 3,502, ranking first nationally in average attendance. He served as a goalkeeper for the Temple Owls from 2011-14. A three-year starter, Scheck appeared in 43 games in his Owl career, tallying 16 clean sheets. As a senior in 2014, he started in 16 games en route to a second-team All-American Athletic Conference selection. He enjoyed a breakout junior campaign in 2013, matching the program record with nine shutouts. The Sayville, N.Y. native was named the league's Keeper of the Week on two occasions and held an .859 save percentage in 18 starts.
