As a child Kevin loved climbing trees, hiking in the woods and playing sports. Some of his favorites were soccer, baseball and basketball. Eventually they all faded away and he fell in love with running. Kevin currently holds the Mid-Valley school records in the 1600 (4:27) and 3200 (9:35), and he was a 3 time district champion and state medalist. He received a scholarship from Duquesne to compete in cross country and track and field. While he was there, Kevin broke 15:00 in the 5k and 31:00 in the 10k. After college he continued to compete, winning the Steamtown Marathon twice (his best time is 2:22). Kevin has also won the Scranton, Binghamton, and Lehigh half marathons (his best time is 1:08).
While at Duquesne, Kevin earned a degree in elementary education and took a job as a teacher at Pocono Mountain School District. He has been teaching middle school math since 2006. In 2008, he also took a job as the cross country and track coach at Marywood. While there Kevin has coached multiple athletes to nationals and rewrote the record books. In 2010, he became a father and slowly his own competitive goals turned to watching his children grow, while getting involved in coaching baseball, soccer, boy scots and now, Ninja classes.
Kevin always encourages his children to climb higher, run faster, and have fun. Ninja classes are the perfect place to teach them how to do all these things in a safe environment. Kevin wishes classes like this were available when he was younger. Through first hand experience, Kevin is amazed at how Ninja classes have positively impacted his children’s confidence and coordination.
