This is Dave Hudson's second tenure at Exeter. This time he's back as chair of the physical education department and wrestling coach.
Hudson also coached Exeter wrestling from 1982 to 1991. He then moved on to St. Lawrence University, where he coached wrestling from 1991 to 1995. He spent the next four years at Governor Dummer Academy as athletic director and wrestling coach. In 1999 Hudson returned to Exeter.
After serving as an assistant wrestling coach under Ethan Shapiro for two years, Hudson took over as head coach six years ago. Shapiro, now the Director of Summer School, stayed on as an assistant coach. "We have the exact, same philosophy," Hudson said. Either Hudson or Shapiro has coached the team since 1985. During that time, Exeter has won 12 Class A championships and eight New England titles.
