Coach Houston comes to Deerfield wrestling from Cardigan Mountain School, where he coached a New England Junior Prep championship program. Prior to Cardigan, he coached at Gilman School in Baltimore, Maryland. He’s a New Hampshire native and wrestled Class L varsity in high school. In lieu of college athletics, Coach Houston served four years in the U.S. Marine Corps, including two deployments between 2001 and 2003; he’s a graduate of the Marine Corps Martial Arts Program and the School of Infantry. At DA, Coach Houston is a teacher of classics (Greek and Latin), and he believes that the ancient sport of wrestling embodies a timeless ideal: to strive always for excellence. Excellence, in turn, is attained by practicing the three pillars of the sport—discipline of mind and body, determination in spirit, and dedication to oneself, one’s community, and one’s heritage.
Coach Houston lives in Scaife II with his wife and daughter.
An ardent believer in the importance of teaching and coaching, Scandling continues to share his delight in Shakespearean drama with students and to encourage wrestlers and polo players to believe in themselves and their teams. A former Division 1 wrestler at Davidson College, he has coached multiple Class A and New England individual champions in assisting and leading the Deerfield wrestlers since 1987. Having never played water polo, Scandling learned the game as the coach of the coed JV team in the early 1990s and then led the girls to the New England title in 1998, the team’s second year of competition. The girls won another title in 2013 and finished second three times. In the ten years he has guided the boys’ squad, the team has won four New England championships and finished second once.
Teutsch wrestled in the state of Illinois at Buffalo Grove High School, coached for ten years at Bancroft school and has been a wrestling coach at DA since 2007.
