It’s a passion that isn’t quitting any time soon.

For Hershey High School field hockey head coach Brianna Price, field hockey is in her blood. Many players quit after a successful college career, but Price never gave up and moved into coaching.  

Price played field hockey at Palmyra High School. Always wanting to help the team win, Price played multiple positions: forward, midfield, and even defense.

That willingness to play almost any position continued after high school when Price played field hockey at the University of Maryland and majored in sports medicine.

Once out of college, she coached a club team in Maryland for three years and later coached at the University of Delaware for a year.

After coaching in Maryland for a couple years, Price decided to settle down in Palmyra.

There she saw the opening for a field hockey coach for Hershey High School and decided to work there.

One of Price’s favorite memories with the HHS field hockey team is when they have pasta parties because she loves watching the team bond.

“Everyone gets along great on and off the team,” said Price.

During practice, the team mainly focus on shooting, passing and receiving the ball, and defensive drills.

The biggest highlight for Price from last year was making the state semi-final. Price said that their biggest goal this year is to be conference champs.

Whenever the team wins a game Price will say, “Always remember this moment.”

Price always encourages and motivates the team when they are having a bad day. She always tries to stay positive and has very high energy.

“We give them popsicles if they score within the first two minutes,” said Price.

The field hockey team’s biggest competitors are Lower Dauphin, Penn Manor, and Downingtown West.

Other than being a field hockey coach, Price is a personal trainer. She loves helping people get healthy, to be more energized, and feel better. Price also has two daughters, Abigail and Avery. One of Price’s favorite things to do is hangout with her family.

Price said, “I wanted to coach at Hershey because I love the sport and love teaching it.”
