Back to the Future for DeMatha (Maryland) football


The man who built the DeMatha High School football team is coming back. According to multiple media sources, Bill McGregor is returning to be the head coach of the Stags that finished No. 36 in last year’s High School Football America 100 national rankings.

McGregor will replace the man that replaced him — Elijah Brooks, who last month accepted a job as an assistant coach at the University of Maryland. McGregor resigned after the 2010 season with a 278-40-3 record as the head coach of DeMatha over 29 seasons. He led the Stags to 17 Washington Catholic Athletic Conference titles.

After leaving DeMatha, McGregor served as an assistant at the Gilman School (Maryland) in 2011. Since 2016, McGregor has been an assistant at St. Frances Academy (Maryland).
