More than a place to live, Eagles offensive line coach Jeff Stoutland needed a residence his daughter could call home.
It would be her fourth move in high school, which is three more than a lot of teenagers.
The search took Stoutland to Haddonfield, N.J., which was appealing.
It ended in Wallingford thanks in no small part to Kevin Clancy, the Strath Haven football coach. Stoutland knew Clancy from his college recruiting trips to see the Panthers.
Stoutland told his daughter, “wherever you want to live, whatever school you want to go to, that’s where we’ll live.
“I thought we were going to end up in Haddonfield,” Stoutland said. “And then I called (Clancy). I said, ‘my daughter is going to come in there tomorrow at 9 o’clock, Coach Clancy. And I’d really appreciate it if you’d kind of greet her at the door.’ He had like 30 students there. I get home that night and she says, ‘dad, we’re living in Media. I love that high school.’
“That’s where we live. We’re very happy where we are.”
