Coaching ∙ Quigley

 

 

 

 

Having an athletic complex named after you is quite an honor, but having the Quigley stadium renamed the Edwin D Driscoll Athletic Complex is only the start of an effort to put Ed Driscoll’s career in capsule form: he is Mr Quigley Athletics. After graduating from North Catholic High School and Southern Illinois University, Ed started his career at Quigley in 1969, serving at times as coach of the football, baseball, and wrestling teams and as athletic director for 28 years. His wrestling team has 253 wins, 19 state qualifiers, 23 WPIAL qualifiers, 29 WPIAL Section Champions, 17 MAC Champions, and was the 1975-1976 MAC Wrestling Team Champion. Ed's teams have competed in Germany, Ireland, Holland, and Belgium, and he was chosen as the US Team coach for “Sports through Understanding,” taking teams to Mexico and Australia. Ed's diamond teams had 266 career wins and 17 first team All Section selections. In 1985 and 1987 Ed was selected Section Baseball Coach of the Year, and his baseball teams have traveled to Belgium, Holland, and Germany. Ed has also served as Keystone State Games Coach, Regional Director, and State Director.
