About Our Coaches

Scott Legacy

Scott Legacy enters his second year as head coach of the Castleton wrestling team, already seeing success with the young program.

In his first year of 2016-17, Legacy led the Spartans to an 11-14 dual meet record, including a victory over Norwich during the NEWA Duals. Castleton won the Ted Reese Invitational at Southern Maine, the first tournament it ever competed in, and finished 13th at the NCAA Northeast Regional Championships. Zak Hale qualified for the NCAA National Championships and won a match at the national meet, while Tyreek Staton also earned All-Region honors by finishing fifth at the NCAA Regional Championships.

Legacy came to Castleton following a Hall of Fame career as the wrestling coach at Mount Anthony Union High School in Bennington for 30 years. The 2014 USA Today National Coach of the Year and New England Wrestling Hall of Fame inductee created a dynasty at Mount Anthony, illustrated by his program's 28 consecutive Vermont State Wrestling Championships.

During his tenure he amassed an impressive 654-35-2 overall record, including eight New England Champion teams and eight more which were runner-up. In the last five years alone he won three New England Championships and finished second once. He also has had 15 teams ranked in the top-25 nationally.

Legacy has shown the ability to develop wrestlers at all weights, with 168 individual Vermont State Champions – a national record for all high school coaches, and 84 All-American wrestlers. He has coached seven national champions, 28 New England Champions and has had three high school USA Team Members. One of his wrestlers has gone on to make the USA World Team and over 180 have competed at all levels of collegiate wrestling.

In addition to his coaching merits, Legacy has held numerous leadership positions within the wrestling community. He has served as the Cadet/Junior National Team Coach since 1990 and for the past 13 years has been a board member of the National High School Coaches Association since 2002. He has been the Vermont State Chairman for USA Wrestling for nearly 30 years and is the Co-President of Catamount Wrestling Club.

Legacy holds a bachelor's degree from Oswego State and a Master of Education Degree in Athletic Administration from Endicott College. He was a three-time high school state champion in Vermont and a high school All-American. He recorded over 100 wins in college, while spending two years each at Morrisville State and Oswego. At Morrisville he was a Junior College National Qualifier and Region 3 Junior College Place winner, as well as team captain. Legacy finished his career at Oswego, where he was a SUNYAC Place winner.
