Varsity Head Coach / Wide Receivers
Coach Stack is entering his 12th season as head coach of the Falcons and his 20th overall since
joining the staff of Coach Reggie Garret back in 2000.  A 1987 graduate of Arlington High School in

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 nine appearances advancing to the 2nd round in 2014, 2015 and 2018 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 fourteen of the last sixteen seasons.  The 2019
Falcons return several key players from last year’s team including Captain’s Nate Unger, Nate Evans,
Kendall Spriggins and Connor Toben as well as 2018 impact players, Tyshawn Creighton, Isi Etute,
Brendan Wallace, Zaire Lawrence, Corey Hunter, Hunter Waltz and George Balance. Transfer
Christian Williams will also help anchor the offensive and defensive line as the Falcons look to
make their first Conference 5 playoff appearance in school history.  The Junior Varsity team is
coming off an undefeated season and while their numbers are down, they have some solid talent and
will look to repeat as city champions for a 2nd straight year.   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 sixteen-year old Jacob, a junior on the
JV team, and thirteen-year old Ava who is a rising 8th grader at GNMS.
