I grew up in Cleveland, Ohio where I wrestled my prep career. After graduation, I attended the University of Toledo to study Education. In 1995, I moved to Houston to teach 6th grade Language Arts and Social Studies. In 1999, I transferred to Mayde Creek HS in Katy ISD where I had the opportunity to give back to the sport of wrestling which had given so much to me as a young person. I served as Assistant Coach for two years and was then promoted to Head Coach where I served for 4 more years. In 2005, I took on the challenge of starting the new program here at Seven Lakes HS and have been building ever since. As a coach, I have amassed 496 dual wins, 54 District Champions, 186 Regional Qualifiers, 13 Regional Champions, 79 State Qualifiers, 28 State Placers, 4 State Champions, 3 Team District Team Championships, 1 Team Regional Championship, and been named District Coach of the Year 3 times. I married my best friend, Kerri in 2000 and we were blessed with the birth of our son, Carter in 2005 and our daughter, Leah in 2008. I love being here where I get the opportunity to work with our great student-athletes, parents, and SLHS staff.
Coach Demarchi and his family.
I grew up in Indianapolis, Indiana and Chicago, Illinois where I wrestled my prep career. I attended Eastern Illinois University and majored in English. In college I coached at Charleston HS, Bloom Trail HS & I held my first head coaching job reviving a dormant program and placed wrestlers at State and won the District Championship in our first season. The following year I moved to Houston to teach and coach in Klein ISD where I was given a football, the head track job, and a Texas History book. Based on our teams' success in football and track I was hired to be the Athletic Director at West Briar Middle School. I have been a featured speaker for HISD, coached in the NFL's player development youth and high school programs and coached Team Texas for four seasons.
At WBMS I was fortunate to have an overall record of 121 - 7 with 40 Individual State Champions along with 11 Team City Championships & 8 Dual Team State Championships (with no team finish lower than 2nd). Although I feel the greatest success I have had is the number of kids that were able to have a chance to find success on and off the mat. While not working with wrestling my wife Chelsea and I enjoy travelling, collecting and refinishing antiques and spending time with our two daughters, Emma & Lily (Badger). It is a pleasure to work with a staff and community that is focused on helping kids be great people.

I started at Seven Lakes High School in the fall of 2017. I have 24 years of teaching and coaching experience overall. I am proud to coach Wrestling and Football and teach Geometry here.
I grew up in Long Island, New York. I went to college at Syracuse University, where I played lacrosse. I moved to Texas in 1995. I've done most of my coaching in the Kingwood and Humble area. During that time, I was a head wrestling coach, head boys’ lacrosse coach, and assistant coach. I have coached at the collegiate level and internationally. I’ve been fortunate to coach in the playoffs in every sport I’ve coached. I was even an assistant principal for a couple of years.
I married my wife Julia in 1997. She teaches third grade at Davidson Elementary. We have 2 daughters Robin and Meredith who are grown and live in Austin and Spring. And in our free time, we are trying to find the best restaurant(s) in Katy. I am also a HUGE fan of World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE).
