Bill Stachelski
Varsity Head Coach / Wide Receivers
Coach Stack is entering his 10th season as head coach of the Falcons and his 18th overall since
joining the staff of Coach Reggie Garret back in 2000.  A 1987 graduate of Arlington High School in
Arlington, Massachusetts, Coach Stack was a three-sport athlete playing football, hockey, and
baseball.  He attended the University of Massachusetts @ Amherst graduating in 1991 with a Bachelor
of Arts degree in History, and in 1997 Coach Stack relocated to Virginia Beach to attend Old Dominion
University.  In 1999 he received a Master’s Degree in Education and the following year he began his
tenure at Cox teaching Virginia & United States History.  Between 2001 and 2007 Coach Stack served as
the defensive coordinator under Head Coach Steve Allosso, his former high school coach and mentor
who is also an Arlington, MA native.  In 2008 Coach Stack inherited the Head Coaching position and
continued down the path that Allosso had set rebuilding the program into a perennial playoff
contender.  Prior to 2008 the Falcons had never been to a playoff game and since then they’ve made
seven appearances advancing to the 2nd round in 2014 and 2015 and claiming their first outright
Beach District Title in 2016.  The Varsity Falcons have not had a losing campaign since 2007 and they’ve
been at the 500. mark or above twelve of the last fourteen seasons.  The 2017 Falcons return several
key players from last year’s team including Captain’s Deiontae Curry (WR/DB), Zach Zwyna (QB), and
Josh Herslow (Slot/LB), as well as 2016 impact players, Tayvion Robinson (Slot/DB), Leno Lester
(RB/DB), Evan Couch (OT), Hunter Schmidtmann (OG), Cam Wallace (TE/DE), Zach Mauer (LB), Carson
DiNardo (WR/K) and Jackson Morgan (RB/DE).  Newcomers Ethan Snare (LB) and Kendall Spriggins
(QB) along with a host of rising JV players should help this year’s squad remain extremely competitive in
the Beach District.  The Junior Varsity is coming off a rebuilding year in 2016 but look to be much more
competitive with a solid freshman class whom the staff hopes will bring that squad back to the top of
the Beach District. Despite past successes on both Varsity and JV however, Coach Stack and the staff
understand that the competition in the Beach District is tough and there is no substitute for hard work,
discipline, and doing things right.  Coach Stack resides in the Great Neck community and is the proud
father to fourteen-year old Jacob, a freshman on the JV team, and eleven-year old Ava.
