Arcadia grad Dave Allen reaches coaching milestone with 400th career win

Cherry Hill East coach Dave Allen, a 1993 graduate of Arcadia University, coached his 400th career victory on Saturday, February 17.

Considered one of the best high school boys’ basketball coaches in the state of New Jersey, Allen is currently the head coach at Cherry Hill East High School, his alma mater. In his 25-year coaching career, Allen owns a 400-275 record.

Allen is just the 23rd head coach in South Jersey boys basketball history to reach the milestone.

In 2014, he was the consensus South Jersey Coach of the Year when he led Cherry Hill East to their first state title berth.

At Arcadia, Allen earned his undergraduate degree in Communications and his graduate degree in Special Education. He graduated from Cherry Hill East High School in 1989.

“I want to thank all the players, coaches, administrators, managers, and students from Eastern, Cherry Hill West, and Cherry Hill East,” Allen said. “And I want to especially thank Coach John Valore, for giving me the opportunity to coach.“
