Montgomery Catholic Preparatory School has named Daniel Veres as the school’s new Athletic Director effective June 2. Veres will oversee all athletic programs.
“We are excited to welcome Daniel back to Montgomery Catholic as our new Athletic Director,” said Anne Ceasar, President of Montgomery Catholic.
“Daniel brings with him not only a strong background in college athletics as a player and coach but an understanding of our school mission, as a parent and third generation Knight,” said Ceasar.
Veres comes to Montgomery Catholic after nine years with Auburn Montgomery’s University Outreach.
“I am looking forward to coming back to my Alma mater as the new Athletic Director. There was a strong pull for me to return to Montgomery Catholic to support the community that helped shape my athletic career.” said Veres.
“We have challenges to overcome, but we are building a great foundation for successful programs at all levels. I want our athletic program to make a positive impact on our students. The goal is to be successful. Success for our sports teams, but also in teaching our athletes that there is more to success than wins and losses. It takes hard work and discipline to achieve your goals, not just in athletics, but in life. Our success will be in having athletes that turn out to be responsible, accountable young adults who will be prepared and successful in college and beyond.”
An alumnus of the Montgomery Catholic class of 1993, Veres played baseball, basketball and golf for the Knights and was a Jimmy Hitchcock nominee. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree from Spring Hill College where he played baseball. Veres has served as an assistant baseball coach for two seasons at Spring Hill College, and as an assistant to the Faulkner University men’s golf team. He and his wife, Jennifer are parishioners at Holy Spirit Catholic Church and have two children, Evie and John Henry.
