New Spring-Ford Athletic Director Dan Miscavage holds much experience despite beginning his first year on the job this fall.

“The positive for moving to this job is that I’ve been prepared for this job for 11 years as the assistant,” explained Miscavage, a graduate from Spring-Ford in 1992, teaching history in the district for 25 years and serving as the assistant director of athletics for the past 11 years.

Miscavage replaces longtime AD Mickey McDaniel, retiring from the position over the summer after 27 years in the position. The athletic director is responsible for the maintenance of the sports program at Spring-Ford for grades 7 to 12.

“Mr. Miscavage is no stranger to the athletic department,” said principal Robert Colyer. “The transition from assistant athletic director to athletic director was really seamless not only for Mr. Miscavage but for us as well.”

Miscavage impacted many students during his time in the classroom, yet he’s ready for a new challenge as Spring-Ford’s AD.

“I taught for 25 years,” he said. “I really enjoyed doing it.”

Miscavage had to participate in three sets of interviews to become the athletic director, after which he had to wait to see if he secured his spot in the athletic department.

“Seven to eight days where we didn’t hear, and then I heard that I got the job and I was very excited,” he said.

Miscavage’s first sports season at the helm will end with some lofty accomplishments, including trips to the state tournament for girls tennis, field hockey, and the boys soccer teams.
