Orsini Retirement Announced
September 28, 2021
PHS Athletic Specialist, Gina Grubb, announces the retirement of Steve Orsini as a varsity baseball coach. Coach Orsini has coached football and baseball in Montgomery County for 37 years and has been coaching at PHS for 15 years. During his tenure, his baseball teams were ranked third in the metropolitan area, recorded five division championships, two regional championships, and one state championship. He was named Gazette Coach of the Year in 2014. Coming out of his program to play at the next level were four Division 1, two Division 2, and one junior college player.
As a huge supporter of the entire PHS athletic program, Coach Orisini brought positive leadership to his student-athletes and always instilled sportsmanship, dedication, and hard work. We are sad to see him go, but we thank him for his tireless efforts while serving as our head coach. We wish him well.
After speaking with Coach Orisini, he shared a few words regarding being a coach at PHS. “It’s been the greatest experience. The players, parents, community, teachers, athletic directors, and administration have all been so supportive of me and the program. I cannot say enough about the parents’ and players’ commitment to excellence. It’s a coach’s dream to coach talented players whose entire focus is to improve and play as a team. Baseball’s success comes from the hard work of the players and the tremendous support of the parents. It was an honor to coach these fine young men.
