Greg Margheim, Purely Personal - 3218

Greg Margheim switched school districts in 2010, taking the athletic director position at another school in the county.

He did so, he told The Fredericksburg Free Lance Star that March, were purely personal: He already lived with his family, including his two daughters, in that school's area.

"If I was at a different school, it would be tough to see them participate in athletics," Margheim told The Free Lance Star of his kids. "So family was the No. 1 reason."

Years earlier, it was Margheim who participated in athletics. And he did well enough to turn pro. Margheim's career, though, was brief, just three seasons. He never made the bigs.

Margheim's pro career began in 1990, taken by the Reds in the 25th round, out of Virginia Tech.

With the Reds, the left-hander Margheim started at short-season Billings, going 6-7 in 14 starts. He also posted a 5.55 ERA.

Margheim moved to single-A Cedar Rapids for his second season, going 4-6 in a mixture of 13 starts and 22 relief outings. His ERA landed at 4.13.

Margheim's third season was his last. Back at Cedar Rapids, Margheim got just five relief outings, giving up six earned runs in 4.2 innings of work, ending his career.

Margheim has since gone on to a career in high school athletics. In 2004, he took the athletic directors job at Brooke Point High School in Stafford, Va., after serving in other similar posts. Then, in 2010, he moved to nearby Mountain View high.
