SES AD Announces New Baseball Coach

Athletic Director Eileen Pliske announced this week that Gray Ange will be Saint Edward’s School’s varsity baseball coach, effective immediately. Mr. Ange is coming to the Pirate Ship from Lincoln Park Academy Magnet, where he is a science, health and physical education teacher. He previously coached at Sebastian River High School, earning District 6-A-8 Coach of the Year honors, and he is currently with the Cannons Baseball University Organization and the 12U-Major team is enjoying a 30-5 record.
Prior to his term at Lincoln Park Academy, and with the Sharks, Ange served as head coach at Silverdale Baptist Academy in Chattanooga, Tennessee, where he enjoyed consecutive winning seasons for four years, culminating with the #3 spot in the state among the DII-A division. Eileen Pliske says, “Gray’s leadership philosophy combines a solid work ethic with dedication to public service, a tenet that we hold for all of our student athletes. His consistent winning record is impressive, but his commitment to building young athletes into adults of strong character and ethics is a perfect fit for Saint Edward’s School.”
Coach Ange adds, “As athletes and coaches, we are called to compete with intensity while remaining humble and focused on a greater purpose than ourselves. We achieve this by proper preparation and training on and off the field, competition rooted in sound character, and a team dedication to community service. I’m excited to meet the players soon, and to grow the program for the School.” In addition to various leadership position in baseball, Ange has served as Assistant Football Coach/Defensive Coordinator, and as a quarterback coach. He continues, “The game of baseball has such a rich history to share with fans, and I can’t wait to hear the crack of the bat on spring evenings on the lagoon. The location of Saint Edward’s School’s campus is a beautiful place to watch a ball game, and we’re looking forward to hosting teams from around the state on this unique campus.” 
Ange is an active member of the American Baseball Coaches Association and the Florida Athletic Coaches Association.
