Holy Ghost Prep 2022-23 basketball preview 

Head coach: Tony Chapman ’71 (45th season)

Last season: 13-10 record, lost to Sun Valley in the first round of the PIAA District 1 playoffs

Key players lost to graduation: Shane Reilly, Dylan Shead, Ryan Sylvester, Aidan Graham

2022-23 season outlook: Holy Ghost Prep head coach Tony Chapman ’71 enters his 45th season with 914 career victories. With a 16-man roster that includes 13 seniors who clearly know the Ghost way, Chapman’s impressive win total should continue to grow. In addition to its obvious experience level and sense of camaraderie, this senior-laden Firebirds squad can really shoot the ball and seems quite adaptable at both ends of the floor. As for areas of concern, Chapman would like the Firebirds to play more consistently at the defensive end and take better care of the basketball against pressure defense.
