Coaches with 100 Wins

          Since the inception of AHSFHS.org some sixteen 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 were 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 431 coaches that have at least 100 verified coaching wins. There are 64 active coaches with at least 100 wins entering the 2023 season. That number is quite surprising and seems to make the 100 win plateau attainable by most coaches with moderate success. Still it is a standard of which coaches are measured.

          As the 2023 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.

          Terry Curtis leads all coaches with 348 wins followed closely by Danny Horn with 341. Paul Benefield is not far behind with 337.

          Mark Freeman has 247 victories and could top the 250 mark early in 2023. Mike Battles Jr. will join the 200 win club with just six more wins this season.

          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 2023.



Coaches approaching the 100 win club
  98  -  Patrick Plott (Carroll)  (98-47)
  97  -  Patrick Nix (Central Phenix City)  (97-31)
  94  -  Adam Fossett (B.B. Comer)  (94-76)
  93  -  Jason Massey (Leroy)  (93-52)
  90  -  Jeremy Perkins (Austin)  (90-57)
