Dave Caldwell guiding GE cage turnaround

Dave Caldwell is the new head boys basketball coach at Glen Este High School beginning with the 2007-08 campaign.

Caldwell comes to Glen Este from McNicholas High School where he coached basketball and taught social studies for eight years. He had previously taught and coached at his alma mater (St. Xavier High School, class of 1993) and Taylor High School for one year each.

Caldwell replaces Tom Jutze as the Trojans’ head cage man. Jutze is remaining at the school to continue teaching physical education.

The new head honcho of the Purple and White’s male basketball program is anxious to get things underway.

“(Glen Este High School) has fantastic athletes. This is the perfect fit for me,” he said. “I don’t live very far away from the school and this is a great, quality school district.”
