Vinny Gallo begins his second season as head coach at Penn State Brandywine in 2017-18.
Gallo’s first squad posted 16 victories and won the PSUAC Eastern Division during the regular season. The team featured four all-conference performers, a pair of all-Americans and the PSUAC Newcomer of the Year, Brian Reynolds. In addition, 14 of Gallo’s players received academic honors on the PSUAC All-Academic Team.
Gallo spent the 2013-16 campaigns as the baseball team’s top assistant, working closely with the infielders and hitters, while also serving as the head of recruiting on the Brandywine baseball staff.
Brandywine has compiled 96 victories overall during Gallo’s five-year tenure. Eleven student-athletes earned all-American awards from the USCAA and 20 claimed all-PSUAC accolades, while nine student-athletes garnered USCAA National Academic Team honors during that time.
Prior to his appointment as assistant coach, Gallo was a four-year member of the Lions’ baseball team. A 2012 graduate of Penn State, Gallo earned his bachelor’s degree in corporate communications.
A native of Delaware County, Gallo graduated from Springfield High School in 2007. He currently coaches a local legion team during the summer and has been an instructor at numerous camps and clinics in the area, including Penn State University Park Head Baseball Coach Rob Cooper’s Prospect Camp during the summer of 2016.
Gallo has also served as the public address announcer at Penn State Brandywine basketball games since his time as a student.
