Coaches with 100 Wins


     Share on Facebook         
      


          Since the inception of AHSFHS.org some nine years ago one of our first priorities was to compile a list of the winningest coaches in the history of Alabama high school football. Over time the list has become more refined as the scores for games have been found through the diligent research completed by myself and many other interested fans of the website.

          This task began with a list of all coaches with at least 100 wins and has grown from that point. We currently have 352 coach that have at least 100 verified coaching wins. There are 66 active coaches with at least 100 wins entering the 2017 season. That number is quite surprising and seems to make the 100 win plateau seem attainable by most coaches with moderate success. Still it is a standard of which coaches are measured.

          As the 2017 football season approaches, there are a number of coaches who are on the verge of being added to our list of winningest coaches. We will follow these and others throughout the season and let you know when and if they reach this milestone.

          Before we reveal the list of potential newcomers to the 100 wins list there are other milestone coaching wins within the reach of other coaches. Buddy Anderson of Vestavia Hills continues to add to his win total. He sits atop the list for the most all-time wins in Alabama high school football history with 325 victories. Dale Pruitt at Albertville is eight victories from the 250 win mark.

          Laron White at Sparkman with 148 wins should reach the 150 win milestone early in the season. Mark Britton (147) and Robert Maddox (142) are within reach of the 150 win plateau.

          Below is the complete list of coaches that could possibly reach 100 wins this season. There may be a few others that could reach 100 wins if their teams do extremely well and win more than twelve games in 2017.
