Dominic Zaccarelli is Westlake High School. As the Wolverine’s Head Football Coach for 19 years, and the school’s Athletic Director for 25 years, “Zac” made a significant impact on thousands of Westlake students and athletes. As a leader in the Southern Maryland high school athletics scene, and around the state as a tremendous advocate for Maryland high school football, he influenced thousands more student-athletes, coaches, and administrators. His infectious, positive energy was his trademark, and he would literally do anything for his current and former players. To his fellow athletic directors, he was more than just a colleague; he was a trusted, wise, and loyal friend.
North Point Athletics shares a special relationship with Westlake High School. While we share a great competitive rivalry, being less than two miles apart, our schools share a community as well. The Wolverines and Eagles have partnered over the years to host basketball tournaments, all-star football games, indoor and outdoor track meets, and cheerleading competitions. Through all this, whether competing against, or partnering with, each other; Zac has been at the forefront – always looking to create opportunities for the young people of Charles County and Southern Maryland.
Several current North Point teachers and coaches worked in the past alongside Coach Zaccarelli, and we honor him for the great leader and educator that he was. We honor and pay tribute to Dominic Zaccarelli, and he will forever be ingrained in the Westlake and North Point Families. Our thoughts continue to be with Dom’s wife, Kris Zaccarelli; his son and our colleague, Coach Tony Zaccarelli; and all of Zac’s family, as well as the entire Westlake Family.
