Coach Danny's coaching experience includes one year as a Mosby Woods Raiders Assistant Head Coach (2006) and three years as Head Coach of the Mosby Woods Raiders (2007-2009). During this time, he also worked as an assistant coach for his Alma Mater, Paul VI Catholic High School. This experience, as well as coaching Fairfax High School's summer baseball team, was part of his impetus for becoming involved in higher education. Five years after graduating from college, he returned to Wheeling Jesuit University in 2013, and for three years, was responsible for recruiting students from several different parts of the country. In the fall of 2016, after completing a Masters Degree in Educational Leadership, he returned home to Fairfax to work for George Mason University. He recently began a new job as Associate Director of Advancement at Bishop O’Connell High School. The Raiders are excited to welcome Coach Danny back to lead the team!
Nick first joined the Raiders in 1996 and continued to compete/coach until his graduation from Fairfax High School. He served as Mosby Woods assistant head coach from 2007-2009 while attending the University of Virginia. His swimming accomplishments include swim team captain at Fairfax High School, multiple NVSL all-star swims, and a brief stint on the Mosby Woods record board (which the 2010 mixed aged boys eclipsed). Nick is currently a licensed transportation engineer working primarily on major highway projects in Northern Virginia. He is very excited to help develop young swimmers in a competitive and fun Raiders atmosphere this summer!
