Coaching ∙ Monaca

 

 

 

 

Stan Berkman was inducted into the Beaver County Sports Hall of Fame for his long successful career as a high school basketball, football, and baseball coach. But he could have earned the honor on his athletic prowess alone. During his student days, Stan was a star baseball, football, and basketball player at Monaca High School and Thiel College and was also a football quarterback at Slippery Rock State College and the University of Pittsburgh during the 1920s. Stan coached basketball and football at Monaca High School from 1935 to 1944, guiding the Indians to WPIAL Class B cage titles in 1939 and 1942 and runners-up status in the 1940 WPIAL Class B title game. Next, Stan served as head basketball and football coach and assistant baseball coach at Wilkinsburg High, where his cagers won sectional titles in 1947 and 1948. In 1951, he moved to Clairton High, where he was head basketball coach and assistant football coach. In 1952 his cage team brought Clairton its first section title in basketball. Stan's coaching career ended when he left Clairton to become superintendent of schools at Baltic, Ohio, where he died in 1974 at age 70.
