Andy Stefanelli ’83 gained much of his football knowledge from working with Our Lady of Good Counsel’s all-time winningest football coach, Bob Milloy.

Stefanelli has put that experience to good use since succeeding Milloy in 2017. Two years later, he led the Falcons to the Washington Catholic Athletic Conference championship. They finished the season 9-3 and were ranked No. 1 by The Washington Post and No. 11 nationally by MaxPreps.

Stefanelli, entering his sixth season as head coach in 2022, guided Good Counsel to the WCAC title game last year. The squad finished 7-5 and 8th in the Post’s final rankings.

Stefanelli joined Milloy’s staff in 2007 and spent eight of the next 10 seasons as the Falcons’ head freshman coach and recruiting coordinator. His freshman teams posted a record of 71-2 (.973 winning percentage).

In the meantime, Stefanelli was helping Milloy build Good Counsel into one of the area’s finest teams. The Falcons captured four-straight WCAC titles (2009-12) and finished No. 1 locally each year. USA Today ranked them No. 4 (2011) and No. 10 (2012) nationally.Good Counsel was 44-4 (.917) those four years and loaded with five future NFL players. Lou Young was a member of the Carolina Panthers for Super Bowl 50. Blake Countess was with the Los Angeles Rams when they advanced to Super Bowl LIII and won Super Bowl LVI. Stefon Diggs is a Pro Bowl wide receiver for the Buffalo Bills.
