Alabama High School Football Head Coaches

Luke Whetstone

After graduating from Troy State, Luke Whetstone took over the football program at Lowndes County High in Fort Deposit.

In 1942 he became the head football coach at Starke University Academy in Montgomery.

Whetstone, who coached at Greenville from 1947-62, led the Tigers to their first 10-0 season in 1955. He also guided the Tigers to their most successful three-year run in school history from 1953 to 1955 when Greenville lost just one game.

The coach also led the Tigers to two state titles in 1953 and 1955.

He also left his mark on the college football landscape. Twenty-four of his players went on to sign football scholarships, including seven who signed with SEC programs.

Whetstone was inducted into the Greenville Hall of Fame in 2011.
