• egripCoach Ed Gannon: Aug. 14, 1960 - Nov. 14, 2018
    Described as a “champion” of youth lacrosse, Ed Gannon coached lacrosse at Bellefonte Area School District for eight years – three years as boys’ head varsity coach followed by five years with the middle school team. During that time, he mentored and coached his student-athletes – not just in the game of lacrosse, but also to be a better student, person and community member. The athletic department and the rest of the Bellefonte Area community acknowledge and are saddened by his sudden death. Gannon was also a longtime volunteer with Special Olympics Pennsylvania. According to his family, “he was a gift that completed (their) family and a blessing to all who were lucky enough to have known him.”
