 E.D. Chink Lott 

E.D. "Chink" Lott was born in Birmingham on October 8, 1905 and graduated from Simpson High School in Birmingham. He attended and was a star halfback at Birmingham-Southern before embarking on his high school coaching career.

������Lotts first stint as a head coach came in 1929 with Valley Head. The next season he took over at Anniston where he would spend the next 14 seasons. His teams compiled a record of 91-22-11 and in 1984, the football stadium in Anniston was named "Chink" Lott Memorial Stadium.

������Following an interruption for World War II he accepted the head coaching position at Demopolis in 1947. Lotts 1951 squad won a State Championship as awarded by the Birmingham News with a 9-0 record. Lott remained with the Demopolis program until his retirement following the 1957 season.

������Coach Lott served as athletic director and coached all sports at both schools. In 26 years as a head coach none of his teams finished a season with a losing record.

The most games any team lost in a any season was three. Three of his squads were undefeated.

������Coach Lott is a member of the Birmingham-Southern Hall of Fame and was also inducted into the Calhoun County Sports Hall of Fame.

������Lott was elected to the Alabama High School Athletic Association Hall of Fame in 1991. Coach Lott died on August 18, 1970, in Demopolis after a long bout with diabetes.

������ A resolution was presented in memory of Coach Lott by the Demopolis City Council on July 6, 1989, attesting not only to his outstanding sports record on the field, baseball diamond and basketball court, but to the fact that he had become legendary in the arena of high school athletics for his ability to lead and mold the lives of young men by teaching the concepts of hard work, perseverance and pride, and in translating these concepts from the football field to the larger field of life itself.
