Leading Regardless of Title: Keeping Yourself and Your Peers Accountable will be explored through active conversation and breakout sessions with Greg Bluestein, Varsity Football Defensive Coordinator of Everett (MA) High School, who has coached teams to win three Massachusetts State Football Championships.

About Greg Bluestein
Greg Bluestein holds a Bachelor’s in English Literature from the University of Massachusetts Boston and a Master’s in Athletic Administration from Endicott College.
Greg has been part of three state championship teams. He credits his football and leadership knowledge to the great coaches he’s been able to work with during this time. Beyond football, Greg will also be taking the helm, this spring, as the school’s head tennis coach for the boys team.
Greg’s journey into leadership development came through a sudden understanding at a football clinic in 2017, where Clemson assistant coach Kyle Richardson gave a presentation about how coaching is more about building relationships and less about winning. Greg has since formed a team leadership council, where his goal is to help prepare the student-athletes of Everett football to be leaders on the field and in life.
He has been working as an educator for Everett High School since 2011. In this time, he has held multiple positions, including 7th grade English teacher, high school math teacher, and most recently, high school guidance counselor. Greg has been coaching high school football for Everett for ten years, working his way up from volunteer assistant to the current varsity defensive coordinator.
Greg’s professional goals include becoming a head high school football coach and/or athletic director to help create a strong, positive culture and develop leadership skills, which he hopes will extend into the community through the power of athletics.
