Otto Pritchard

Coaching ∙ Monaca

 

 

 

 

Otto Pritchard parlayed an excellent playing career at Monaca High School and Geneva College into an excellent coaching career at his high school alma mater. Otto was a three year starter at Monaca and was All Section and co-captain in the 1952-1953 season when the Indians won the section title. Otto helped Geneva become an NAIA power in the mid 1950s as they reached the national tournament three consecutive years. The 1955-1956 team finished 24-3 and were 61-19 during Otto’s three years as a starter. Otto returned to Monaca as a teacher and took over basketball coaching duties for the 1958-1959 season. He coached the next 15 years as the Indians were perennial contenders, winning three section titles with Otto receiving Coach of the Year three times. The highlight of Otto’s career was the 1971-1972 squad that won the WPIAL title and lost the state championship game to Darby-Colwin. His overall record was 219-120. He was assistant coach in the 1973 Dapper Dan Roundball Classic in Pittsburgh.
