The Haverford School's varsity soccer program has won four conference titles, three PAISAA State Championships, and four national rankings since 2011. In 2014, the team finished #10 in the nation. Numerous players have received all-conference, all-state, and all-region status, highlighted by back-to-back Gatorade Players of the year in 2011 and 2012. The 2014 team also won the NSCAA Ethics Award.
Dan Keefe is head coach of the varsity program. For six years, he coached under the direction of Bill Brady, whose teams won four Inter-Ac Championships and three PAISAA Championships. In his inaugural 2018-19 season, Coach Keefe's team won the Inter-Ac and was ranked as high as 10th nationally.
Keefe played soccer in Cincinnati, Ohio, and matriculated to Wake Forest University.
In addition to his work with the soccer team, Dan is an Upper School English teacher, coordinator for the Edward R. Hallowell Literary Lecture, and a part-time poet/writer.
