Active Coaches with the Most Wins 

    
          The 2017 offseason saw many coaching changes that will affect schools for year to come. Several coaches high on our list of all-time winningest coaches retired from the sideline forever. Fred Yancey leaves Briarwood Christian with 278 victories. Dale Pruitt retires with 253 wins.

          Brent Hubbert, with 183 wins, moves south from Maplesville to Brewton at T.R. Miller.

          That leaves us with the list below as we enter the 2019 season soon. Buddy Anderson leads the all-time list for wins in the state with 335 victories. The closet coach with a shot at toppling him is Jamie Riggs with 312 wins.
