Andrew Daley coaching the Cherry Hill East football team one last time

After four seasons as the head football coach of the Cherry Hill East Cougars football team, Andrew Daley has decided to resign citing the need to spend more time with his family.
Daley compiled a record of 9-27 over four seasons including a 3-7 record this past season. Despite the losing record, Daley helped bring more competitiveness and energy to the program.
“The past four years have been a great experience,” Daley said. “East was my first head coaching job so I learned so much as I went along. I thank Dr. Perry and Mr. Beirao for giving me the opportunity to coach here.”
Daley took over the program during the 2018-2019 season. At the time, there were roughly 12 kids in the program but now after this season, the program has over 70 players.
“The players have made tremendous progress and truly have the ability to have a special year next year,” Daley said. “The decision to step down was a difficult one because of the players. I look forward to continuing to follow their progress over the coming years, and wish them nothing but the best of luck.”
No matter who the coach will be, the Cougars are still looking bright for next season. Quarterback Ben Cohen (‘24) will look to take the next step in his career after becoming the first 1000 yard passer in 10 years for the Cougars. In addition to Cohen, Maurice Sample (‘23), Andrew Watson (‘23), Ethan Haddock (‘23), and Justin Herskowitz (‘23) were all WJFL National Division Selections and will play a big part in next season. The future is certainly bright for East football.
