“I am very excited to add Danny to the staff," said Coach Casper. He has had a good career at Lee and is eager to start his coaching career. He will bring a lot of energy to the group and I think he will be a great link to the players for us. I look forward to helping him develop as a coach and to see how he will work with the team.”
Hrenko comes to ETSU after finishing a four-year career as a goalkeeper for the Lee University men’s soccer team.

“First off, I would like to thank David Casper and Josh Scott for allowing me to be a part of this great program. I was attracted to join the school and coaching staff from the first conversations I had with Casper. He has a clear vision of what he wants the team to achieve and what he expects out of me. As for Scott, he has made my transition into this position very smooth. I’m very excited to be joining them and the team to be a part of ETSU Men’s Soccer.”
Hrenko, a native of Tampa, Fla., graduated from Lee with a Bachelor of Science in business administration with a focus in marketing management. He slots into the graduate assistant role at ETSU, where he will be pursuing a Master of Science in sports management.
