Looking to continue the successful tradition of girls basketball at St. John’s, Washington native Jonathan Scribner was hired as the new girls basketball head coach in 2007. He replaced Eddie Simpson, who compiled a 213-51 record in seven seasons.
In his first season at St. John’s, he led the Cadets to a 14-14, 10-8 WCAC record and a fifth seed in the WCAC Tournament.
Prior to St. John’s, Scribner spent six seasons as the girls head coach at the National Cathedral School in Washington. During the 2006-07 season, his team completed a 19-0 conference record en route to the Independent School League Division championship. Scribner was also the freshman head coach as well as the assistant to the varsity head coach at St. Albans School in Washington.
Scribner has nearly 25 years of basketball experience as a player and coach. He has helped to increase basketball opportunities for youth of all ages in the Washington area.
From 1995-2007, Scribner served as Director of Operations for One on One Basketball, running basketball camps, clinics and programs for youth and adults throughout the Washington area. He also organized after-school programs, camps and clinics for children across the country and trained and developed hundreds of players on an individual basis.
In 2007, Scribner left One on One Basketball and founded HoopEd. The organization is committed to teaching youth the love of the game and the life lessons that come from it. HoopEd also provides year round basketball and sports programs in the Washington area.
Scribner is a 1989 graduate of St. Albans School, where he was a three sport athlete in basketball, baseball and football. He left the Washington area to attend the University of Wisconsin, where he graduated in 1993. Scribner is proud to say that he received his first basketball training at the famous Washington Metropolitan Basketball School directed by former St. John’s legendary head coach Joe Gallagher.
