Coach Gorman enters his eighth season as the head coach of the Dukes baseball program and is the all-time leader in wins for Cumberland County College. After the 2018 season Gorman’s career record is an incredible 269-85 which is a .760 winning percentage. In Gorman’s 7 seasons at Cumberland they have been in the Region 19 championship game four seasons of the past five seasons (2014,2015,2016,2017), won the Region 19 Championship in 2 out of the last 5 years which led to two World Series appearances.  In those two World Series appearances the Dukes finished 2nd and 3rd.

The 2018 Dukes baseball team would start the season winning 12 of their first 15 games. The Dukes held the #1 ranking for the first 5 weeks of the national poll.  The Dukes fell to #2 in the poll and remained there for the remainder of the season.  With such a young roster it was very impressive that Cumberland was able to maintain a top two ranking for the entire 2018 season. The Dukes made it back to the Region XIX Final Four for the 5th consecutive year but made an unexpected early exit after losing in extra innings in an elimination game.

The 2017 season was a major success that included the nation’s longest winning streak (an incredible 33 game streak), 55 wins (a NJ college single season record), a Region XIX Championship, a GSAC Championship, a trip to the College World Series (3rd place national finish) and a final ranking of #1 in the national poll.  The 2017 roster produce three NJCAA All-American’s: Mitch Walker (1st team), Jarrett Quinn (2nd team) and Chris Salvey (3rd Team) who lead the country in homeruns (18).  Walker was also named to the Division III World Series all-tournament team along with Anthony Harrold. Jarrett Quinn was named the Region XIX Pitcher of the year. This award has only been around for two years and the Dukes have won it both times (Will Latcham 2016). 

Coach Gorman was chosen by his coaching peers in Region 19 as the Coach of the Year.  He was also named NJCAA District G Coach of the Year and the ABCA NJCAA District G Coach of the Year. Also of note, another former standout for Gorman was drafted in the 2017 MLB draft. Will Latcham was drafted in the 17th round by the St. Louis Cardinals.

Quinn finished the season with a perfect 12-0 record which is a Cumberland County College single season wins record.  Righty Justin Smith broke Cody Stashak’s career wins record with 18. Two Dukes signed NCAA Division I scholarships (Mitch Walker – North Carolina Central University, Dan Goggin – James Madison University) and another seven Dukes signed NCAA Division II Scholarships (John Banes – Lockhaven, Nick Bralczyk – Barry, Justin Smith – Wilmington, Marco Rios - LMU, Chris Salvey – LMU, Joe Bobiak – LMU, Tovine Potts – Tusculum).

In 2016 the Dukes made it back to the Region XIX Championship game for the third straight year just one win away from a World Series bid. Even though the Dukes came up one game short the season was another huge success.  A mainstay in the national top ten poll the Dukes finished 36-16.  The Dukes saw three of their pitchers sign NCAA Division 1 scholarships.  Will Latcham who led the nation in strikeouts and set the single season record for strikeouts at Cumberland with 128 K’s signed with 2016 National Champion Coastal Carolina University. Matt Colon who had a tremendous sophomore campaign going 8-3 on the mound committed to James Madison University.  Nick Caregnato will continue his baseball and academic career at North Carolina Central University.  The remaining 3 sophomores have all committed with Raul Perez and Calvin Clark both receiving scholarships from NCAA Division II Goldey Beacom.  John Schoelkopf committed to Neumann University under new Head Coach Dan DiBartolomeo a former player for Coach Gorman.

The 2015 season was another success but the Dukes came up two outs short of making back to back World Series appearances.  The Dukes finished the 2015 season with a 36-9 record and a final #9 national ranking.  The Dukes were ranked in the top 10 national poll for the entire 2015 season.

The Dukes baseball program saw two of their own drafted in the 2015 MLB draft.  Sophomore RHP Joe Zanghi went in the 24th round to the Cincinnati Reds.  Cody Stashak who just finished his junior season at St. John’s University and one year removed from the Dukes baseball program was drafted in the 13th round by the Minnesota Twins.  Also moving on is Dalton Mayberry a LHP and OF who accepted a DI scholarship to Rider University.  Justin Geri will play for Rutgers-Camden while Tyler Mixon goes to the same conference to play for Rowan University

The 2014 season followed the most successful season in program history which would itself become history of its own.  In just his third year at the helm, Coach Gorman led the Dukes to 49-10 record, Region XIV Championship, #1 national ranking, trip to the college world series and was the National runner-up.  The Dukes first ever trip to the College World Series in Tyler, TX was an exciting one.  The Dukes made it to the national championship game coming up just short losing to the host team Tyler Junior College.  Tyler Junior College was the #2 nationally ranked team.

The 2014 season continues the remarkable turnaround the program has come under since Coach Gorman and his staff arrived in September of 2011. In just 3 seasons Gorman has compiled a record of 106 wins and 42 loses. The turnaround is a remarkable one in that the baseball program had won a combined 46 games in the previous 7 seasons before Gorman’s arrival.

2014 was a season for the record books individually. Sophomore Anthony Lopez broke the NJCAA single season triples record with 16.  The previous record was 13.  Anthony had an amazing career while at Cumberland earning 1st Team All-Region honors twice, 2014 Region XIX Player of the Year, 2014 1st Team All-American and accepted an NCAA Division I scholarship to Campbell University. Right handed pitcher and St. John University bound Cody Stashak was named 2nd Team All-American and catcher Jose Martinez was named 3rd Team All-American. Jose will continue his career at Division I St. Peter’s University.  Jordan Glover received the Rawlings/ABCA Gold Glove award.  Jordan who accepted a NCAA Division I scholarship to the University of Delaware was also named the NJCAA National Defensive Player of the Year.  Also receiving scholarships to continue their academic and athletic careers were Devin McCann (Bellhaven University) and Josh O’Neill (William Penn University). Tim Gallagher who had one of the finest careers a Junior College player could have will be deciding on his next outfield to patrol soon. Tim was also named a Region XIX first team outfielder.

The Dukes continued their winning ways under Coach Gorman in his second season at the helm.  The 2013 season was a record breaking season for the Dukes.  The Dukes finished 33-14 which is the best record in the baseball program's history and the highest single season win total for any athletic program ever at Cumberland County College.  In two seasons under Coach Gorman the baseball program has won a combined 57 games.  In the previous 7 seasons the baseball program won a combined total of 46 games. The Dukes also received the #4 seed in the Region 19 tournament. The Dukes have high hopes for the 2014 season with the return of a talented freshman class, a solid recruiting class and some key transfers.

In Coach Gorman's first season as the Dukes skipper he guided the Dukes to an incredible turn around in the 2012 spring season.  The Dukes finished with a 24-18 record which was the 4th best record in program history.  The Dukes also made it into the Region 19 playoffs.  In the previous 4 years the Dukes won a total of 25 games and had not made the Region 19 playoffs since 2004. The 2012 season was a remarkable one especially with only an 18 man roster. Coach Gorman and staff have worked tirelessly to successfully recruit 30 new Dukes for the 2012-2013 season.  There are two 1st team All-State players and four Carpenter Cup players in the 2012-2013 recruitment class.

Before taking over the Dukes baseball program, Gorman was the Head Baseball Coach at Holy Spirit High School in Absecon. At Holy Spirit, Gorman had a similar challenge in that he took over a struggling program. In seven seasons he compiled a record of 120 - 54. In Gorman's last three years at Holy Spirit he led them to three straight conference titles with at record of 64 wins and only 16 losses. Coach Gorman was the Vice President of the SJBCA and the head coach for the Tri-Cape team in the prestigious Carpenter Cup (2010, 2011). He was also named the Atlantic City Press Baseball Coach of the Year in 2009. Coach Gorman is most proud of his program's ability to move players onto and succeed at the next level. In seven seasons, Holy Spirit produced 26 college baseball players with one getting drafted this past June. Gorman will work to make sure his Dukes' baseball players achieve these same goals: moving on in college or professional baseball.

Coach Gorman is originally from St. Joseph, Missouri. He played college baseball at Kansas City Kansas Community college and North Central Missouri College before receiving his bachelor's degree from the University of Missouri. He received his Master's degree from LaSalle University. Coach Gorman resides in Absecon with his wife Emily and three children Leanna, Ellee and Beau.
