Class of 2013
Danvers High School
With nearly 400 victories and a winning ratio of 70% there is little doubt that Roger Day knows how to build a top notch program and beyond this how to maintain one. Among Danvers High School’s many accomplishments under Roger’s tutelage have been three consecutive undefeated regular seasons, including 66 consecutive victories in the Northeastern Conference.
Coach Day’s squads have qualified for post season play in 21 of 25 seasons, capturing the state championship in 2001 and reaching the finals in 1999. In his 25 years as varsity coach he has garnered numerous “Coach of the Year” awards, the most prestigious being named the 2006 District 1 National High School coach of the year.
Beyond his talents in the dugout Roger has proven to be the consummate professional in the classroom as well. Colleagues are quick to point to Roger’s many outstanding qualities stating that he is “hard-working, dedicated, enthusiastic, and above all compassionate”. In nominating Coach Day for induction into the Hall of Fame, Athletic Director, John Sullivan wrote that Coach Day’s reputation is such that when a job needs to be done folks around Danvers High are heard to say “ask Roger.”
