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 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).

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. Stefon Diggs is a Pro Bowl wide receiver for the Buffalo Bills.

Dorian O’Daniel and Kendall Fuller helped the Kansas City Chiefs win Super Bowl LIV.

Stefanelli spent his first two seasons coaching JV defensive backs and wide receivers. He took the reins of the freshman team in 2009. In his first five years, the squad was undefeated. He also attended all varsity meetings, charted offensive plays on game days and assisted in game planning.
