DAddio Resigns














D'Addio Resigns as Girls Varsity Soccer Coach at PJP II

March 1, 2010, Boca Raton, Fl., Team Boca Soccer Club Director Bill D'Addio has resigned from his position as the Girls Varsity Soccer coach at Pope John Paul II High School. His announcement comes after another successful season for the Eagles, who reached the Regional Semi Finals for the second year in a row and have never failed to reach the Regional tournament under D'Addio's five year tenure as coach. This past season the Eagles finished with a record 18 wins, 5 losses, and two ties, with three of the five losses coming at the hands of the eventual state champion American Heritage-Delray, whose team consists mostly of Team Boca players, the local travel club which D'Addio runs. "It's been a great experience coaching at Pope John Paul II" said Coach D'Addio. "I'll definitely miss all the players and everyone involved at Pope but I'll always stay connected with the school and soccer program" said D'Addio, who also serves as an Advisory Board member to the school. D'Addio leaves Pope John Paul II with a record of 75 wins, 22 losses, and 7 ties, with probably the most notable win coming in 2008 when his Eagles won the District Championship with an upset over a much more experienced St. Andrews squad. D'Addio's team also had an extremely impressive 3.94 team Grade Point Average (GPA)this season, which he attributes to a disciplined coaching style that demands a total commitment to both soccer and academics. Coach D'Addio stated there were two main reasons for his resignation from Pope. First is to have more time to travel and watch his daughter Brittany play her first year of college soccer, and second is to spend more time coaching at Team Boca and further develop their college recruitment program, which has recently become almost a full time job for D'Addio. "Our mission at Team Boca has become more focused on college recruitment and helping our kids earn soccer scholarships" said D'Addio. Every player on last season's Team Boca Girls Under 18 age squad (which D'Addio was the coach) received an offer to play college soccer, from such schools as St. John's, Ole Miss, NC State, East Carolina, and NYU; just to name a few. This year's Team Boca seniors look to do the same. Among them is Pope John Paul standout Brittany D'Addio, (Coach) D'Addio's daughter, who recently signed a national letter of intent to play at Flagler College in St. Augustine next season. "I'm really looking forward to turning the page and just enjoy watching my daughter play in college next season." said D'Addio. The PJP II girls soccer team will be left in good hands as PJP II Athletic Director and fellow Team Boca coach Scott Baker will replace D'Addio as the coach of the girls team, as well as the boys which he is currently the coach. " Being able to have Scott step right in and take over was a huge part of my decision. The team won't miss a beat"
