Babe was a three time state champion as a player at VASJ under his father, the coaching legend Ted Kwasniak. He played division one basketball at West Point where the discipline he learned at home served him well during his in the army. Upon returning to his alma mater as the boys varsity coach in 2010 Coach Kwas led VASJ to five straight state championship games winning it all in 2013, 2015, and 2017. His father Ted has been his assistant throughout his tenure as the leader of the Viking program.
