A former Pride standout Sean Gleeson '03 has been recently promoted to offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach for Princeton University's football team. Gleeson has been a member of the Princeton offensive coaching staff for four years, during which the team took home two Ivy League championships.

According to Princeton's head coach Bob Surace, who was quoted in an article for the University, "Gleeson has done an exceptional job in every responsibility he has had at Princeton. He has had a big role in the success of our offense as the running backs coach, he did a tremendous job calling plays in our JV games the previous three years, he was an outstanding offensive coordinator for my brother Brian at Farleigh Dickenson, and our special teams units were consistently the best in the Ivy League last fall."

"Our offense has not only been an Ivy League leader, it has broken all-time records for points scored and yards gained over the last four seasons," Surace added. "Sean combines the understanding of the pass game as a former quarterback — who played for James Perry at Williams — with the run game that he helped implement.   Most importantly, Sean is a tremendous teacher that will lead the quarterbacks and our offense with great passion."

Gleeson, a Glen Ridge, NJ native joined Trinity-Pawling in the Fall of 2002, where he made an immediate impact on the field. He was captain of Football, as well as lettering in Hockey and Baseball. He was named an All-Founders League Quarterback, as well as receiving the Coaches Award for his efforts and achievements at the quarterback position. Sean carried his talents to the college level, attending Williams College, where he played both football and baseball.

At Williams, Gleeson was the highest rated passer in the NESCAC in 2005, minimum 100 attempts, with a rating of 163.6. His team finished 8-0 on the year in 2006, and was responsible for a two-quarterback system that threw for 4,039 yards over a 2 year span. He received the Farley Award in 2006, which is awarded to the member of the football team who demonstrates superior qualities of dedication, loyalty and sacrifice for the betterment of the team. In baseball, Sean finished his career with .333 batting average, 139 hits and 45 extra base hits and was named Second Team All NESCAC in 2006.
