Scholarship for Athletes sat down with David Geatz, the newest men's tennis coach at the University of Pennsylvania. Geatz provides some insight on what it takes to play at Penn - and what he looks for in potential recruits.
Questions and Answers
Scholarship For Athletes (SFA): What made you come back to coach tennis in the Ivy League? David Geatz (DG):
I missed college tennis, the coaching, the relationships you develop with your players and my friends in the coaching profession.
SFA: What do you see as differences between Cornell and Penn?
DG: The biggest differences are location. Penn is in a major metropolitan center and Cornell is in a small college town. Academically they are both great universities, but one of the strong selling points of Penn is the Wharton School of Management, one of the best undergraduate business schools in the world.
SFA: Assuming that they have the academics and tennis level to attend your school, when should junior players begin to contact you or send you their resume?
DG: Some time during the start of their junior year in high school would be ideal.
