Coaches with 100 Wins

     Share on Facebook         

          Since the inception of some eleven 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 363 coaches that have at least 100 verified coaching wins. There are 73 active coaches with at least 100 wins entering the 2018 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 2018 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 329 victories. Terry Curtis at UMS-Wright is eleven victories from the 300 win mark.

          Danny Horn returns to Central Clay County with 287 wins as also approaches the 300 win mark. Stacy Luker (199) and Josh Niblett (194) are within reach of the 200 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 2018.

Coaches approaching the 100 win club
  99  -  Lymos McDonald (Cherokee)  (99-68)
  98  -  Charlie Taylor (South Choctaw Academy)  (99-55)
  96  -  Tim Smith (Evangel Christian Alabaster)  (99-53)
  92  -  Matt Griffith (Sylacauga)  (99-50)
  92  -  Don Jacobs (Scottsboro)  (99-86)
