SHERIDAN — Eric Frey is no stranger to Sheridan, Wyoming or Sheridan College. Frey graduated from Sheridan High School in 1988 and has spent the last 10 seasons as the assistant volleyball coach at SHS.
While at Sheridan High School, Frey helped lead the Lady Broncs to a state championship in 2011.
“I have coached for 10 seasons at Sheridan High School, from 2004 to 2014, and I am looking forward to the opportunity to help Sheridan College’s athletic department and the volleyball program,” Frey said. “I would like to see Sheridan be contenders in the Region IX and national tournament.”
Before entering the coaching field, Frey participated in volleyball and was a decathlete in track at Foothill College in Los Altos, California.
Frey received a degree in sports science and fitness in 1990 and later attended the National University of Health Sciences in Illinois, where he graduated with a Bachelor of Biomedical Science/Health Science-Chiropractic in 2000.
Prior to his tenure at SHS, Frey spent two years at the University of Wyoming, where he participated in and coached the men’s club volleyball program.
“Eric has been a personal friend and volleyball-community advocate since I moved to Sheridan,” Sheridan College head volleyball coach Jennifer Stadler said about her new assistant. “He has a wealth of knowledge, and his attention to detail within the game is beyond what you would see in an assistant coach.
“His enthusiasm, passion, and professionalism will be an infectious asset to our team,” Stadler added. “He will be able to bring new ideas to both on and off the court workouts and drills. When our assistant position opened up, Eric was the type of person, and coach, that I was looking for, and I am ecstatic to welcome him aboard.”
