Bill Stachelski
Varsity Head Coach / Wide Receivers & Linebackers
Coach Stack is entering his 11th season as head coach of the Falcons and his 19th 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
eight 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 thirteen of the last fifteen seasons.  The 2018 Falcons return several key
players from last year’s team including Captain’s Tayvion Robinson (QB/DB), A Virginia Tech commit,
Cullen Lyons (LB), Jackson Morgan (FB/DT),  and Leno Lester (Slot/DB), as well as 2017 impact
players, Jeremy Herslow (WR/DB), Sam Dalton (OT), Ethan Snare (TE/DE), Nate Unger (C/DT), and
Kendall Spriggins (QB/DB).  New players Keontae Jenkinns (Slot/DB) and Nate Evans (WR/DB) should
help this year’s squad remain extremely competitive in the Beach District.  The Junior Varsity team is
coming off a solid 4-2 campaign in 2017 and look to be much more competitive with a solid sophomore
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 fifteen-year old
Jacob, a sophomore on the JV team, and twelve-year old Ava who is a rising 7th grader at GNMS.
