Ben Luber is excited to join George School as the new boys’ varsity basketball coach. Ben is the all time leading scorer and a proud member of the Council Rock North High School Athletics Hall of Fame, was a four-year starting point guard at Penn State University (PSU), and has ten years of Division 1 coaching experience. In addition to his coaching responsibilities, Ben will also be overseeing athletic advancement, working as a liaison between athletics and admissions, and developing sport camps and clinics.
“I am truly honored to be the next boys’ basketball coach at George School,” said Ben. “My roots are local and I am passionate about giving back to the community that helped shape me into the person I am today. I am excited to use these experiences to run a variety of camps and clinics at George School that I believe will ignite a new excitement in the athletics community.”
After graduating from PSU with a bachelor of science in kinesiology, Ben went on to play two years of professional basketball in Israel and Iceland. After his playing career, Ben created the Ben Luber Basketball Academy, where he helped students in the Bucks County area learn new techniques that would improve their game.
As assistant head coach at Rider University, Ben helped lead the team to their first National Invitation Tournament appearance in twenty years, thirty-six Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) games, and fifteen conference wins in one season—the most in Rider’s history. He developed ten all-MAAC selections in three years and was responsible for on-court skill development. Prior to his experience at Rider, Ben served as associate head coach at Binghamton University where he recruited the first and second all-time leading scorers and rebounders in Binghamton’s history, and was awarded the NCAA Public Recognition award.
“Ben grew up locally and is very familiar with the area as well as George School,” said Kurt Ruch, director of athletics. “I am excited to have him on board and look forward to him helping to expand our athletics program and help take us to the next level of competition.”
Off the court, Ben has helped train and develop professional players Ryan Arcidiacono, Malcolm Miller, Jason Thompson, and Ryan Thompson.
Ben lives in Feasterville, Pennsylvania with his wife and son.
