Coaches with 100 Wins


     Share on Facebook         
      


          Since the inception of AHSFHS.org some seven 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 323 coach that have at least 100 verified coaching wins. There are 73 active coaches with at least 100 wins coming into the 2014 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.

          Entering into the 2014 football season there are a number of coaches that 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 possible newcomers to the 100 wins list there are other milestone coaching wins within reach of other coaches. With one win, Buddy Anderson of Vestavia Hills will tie Waldon Tucker for the most wins all-time in Alabama high school football history. Terry Curtis of UMS-Wright is seven wins from 250 and Dale Pruitt is nine from the same mark. Lamar Harris at Hubbertville with 199 wins should reach the 200 win milestone early in the season. Lastly, Josh Niblett is one win away from the 150 win mark.

          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 10 games in 2014.
