Casey Rummel is the new varsity head coach. He coached the LWHS boys' C Team last season. In the fall of 2019, he began his first season as head coach of the Newport High School girls' varsity team. Casey is in his second year as an English teacher at LWHS. having relocated from Oakland, CA, where he taught English and coached both boys and girls Varsity soccer in nearby Richmond, CA from 2013-2018.
Growing up, Casey played soccer in local leagues, but chose basketball over soccer in high school. He currently plays soccer in adult leagues around Seattle, where he lives. Though he stopped playing for a few years, his love for the game never dwindled. He has always been passionate about all aspects of “the beautiful game,” from tactics to psychology to player development. His coaching philosophy centers on the belief that attitude and effort are more important than talent; in addition to the inherent joy of playing and coaching the game itself, he believes that soccer is an ideal medium for developing lifelong character traits like commitment, growth mindset, and teamwork.
Casey is thrilled to take on the challenge of leading the program and looks forward to pushing the program to new heights.
