Who Are These Two Legendary Coaches? George Smith & Al Morrell

Recommended Posts

In the southern part of the state, only 2 coaches have ever coached at the same school(head coach that is) for 25 years and won 225+ games and at least one state title at that school.

Who are they and at what school did each coach for that long tenure?

I know Paul Maecthle was out Southeast for 33 years and Joe Kinnan was out Manatee for 29.  Both won titles and have close to 300 wins.  

I am talking south of there, Hwy 17, like the northern tip of Lake Okeechobee southward.

Good try, but no.

Think which team in south FL has won a LOT of games over the years.

Al Morrell, who coached for 25 seasons at Clewiston, is the winningset coach ever in SW FL, and is #15 on the list of all-time wins.  He retired in 2001.  He started his career coaching 5 years at Naples Lely back in the 1970's.   Under Morrell, Clewiston went 232-61-1, including one state co-championship, four state runner-ups, 12 regional final appearances, 17 district titles, and 25 overall playoff wins. He was 261-78-5 overall as a high school football coach in Florida.  He is one of only a handful of coaches in FL hs history to ever win 100 games in a single decade

    • I have spent some many hours this week getting these previews together and I am stoked that I will be posting them here in the coming hours today. Also the rankings are coming and I am wrapping them up in the wee hours of the morning. I will post the links as they go live but here is an idea on the schedule and what to expect    
    • The running back is Daijun Edwards, a four star who received an offer from Kirby Smart in the NINTH grade! Although he didn't play football in the eighth grade, due to growth plate issues, where the muscle grows faster than the bone structure! He had to have surgery that year to rectify the problem. But is back in form, as one the top backs in not only Georgia, but America! Barring injury this season, he will break the all time rushing record for the Packers! And we've had three All Americans in the past, plus two Georgia Offensive Players of the Year! But good news for those not named UGA! Kirby has a glut of current talent at RB! So Daijun has opened up his recruiting to other Power Five schools, including Auburn and FSU, where those two will already have two players on their rosters from Colquitt, in 2020!
    • Lakeland looks good.  That's all I'm gonna say.  
    • Lakeland destroys them. Like Nolebull said, it’s sad to think that just 7 years ago, Manatee was regarded one of the best teams in the nation. Now, they’re a dumpster fire. They’ll be lucky to keep this game respectable going into halftime. This game will not be close. 45-17 Lakeland
    • Dook Graham is at his best with the ball in his hands. I think he could end up being a little like Brandon James was when he gets to Gainesville.
