Taking Baker’s place as head coach will be David Archer, former head coach for the HACC Hawks men’s basketball team. Under Archer’s leadership the Hawks qualified for the Region IXX tournament for the first time in the school’s history.
“Dave Archer has had success at every program he has been a part of,” said Dave Baker. “We’re excited to welcome him back to the Central Penn Knights family.”
This won’t be the first time Archer has called himself a Knight. Archer also played for the men’s basketball team in 2001 before transferring to Elizabethtown College. Archer earned his Bachelor of Professional Studies in Criminal Justice from Elizabethtown College, and his Master of Professional Studies in Organizational Leadership from Central Penn College. He also has coached at HGI Academy, New Hope Academy Charter School, Pine Grove Area High School, Penn State University Harrisburg and Bishop McDevitt High School.
Joining Archer on the coaching staff will be Assistant Coach Jeff Sparrow. Sparrow has coached at Red Land High School, Exeter High School and Pope John Paul II High School.
