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

    • These quarterbacks are considered by many to be amongst the top FL hs qb's from the days prior to 1980.  All went on to successful careers as qb's in college, 4 of them as collegiate All-Americans.  All but one played their college ball in FL.  Have fun trying to recognize some of the old school uniforms. What are their names, and where did each go to high school and college?      #1 pictured below #2 pictured below #3 pictured below #4 pictured below #5 pictured below #6 pictured below
    • 14-0 Vanguard, led by Daunte Culpepper, takes on defending state champion, 13-1 Bradenton Southeast and Peter Warrick.  What an ending!  So many great state title games in Daytona Beach back in the mid 90's.  
    • It is Antrel Rolle.  Here are some hs highlights below  
    • What has me most intrigued by this team?  I think they could very well have the top DE tandem in the state this year.  Elijah Roberts and Jabari Ishmael are going to be a handful for any offensive line out there.  Their coach has commented how facing those two each day in practice is really helping their o-line.  Roberts committed to the U last month.  Come next year, junior Ishmael will undoubtedly be one of the top defensive recruits in the state.  Everyone knows about the playmaking abilities of Henderson, who caught 3 TD's in last year's 8A title game in addition to winning a state 400m track title.  And Pitt commit Parrish is one of the better senior backs in the state. Though not highly recruited, dual-threat qb Brandon McDuffey showed what he could do in last year's title game, completing 5TD passes.  Watch for him and Henderson to light things up this year.  Will those players be enough to get them back to the title game?  Of course, a lot will depend upon the players without all of the stars that are not mentioned here.       Xzavier Henderson WR  https://247sports.com/Player/Xzavier-Henderson-46037461/ Henry Parrish RB  https://247sports.com/player/henry-parrish-46039386/ Elijah Roberts DE https://247sports.com/Player/Elijah-Roberts-46051699/ Jabari Ishmael DE https://247sports.com/Player/Jabari-Ishmael-46058192/ Brandon Coleman CB https://247sports.com/Player/Branden-Coleman-46058198/
    • Very strong on the front end, weak on the back end. Smart in the sense that banged up starters will have a chance to get healthy for the playoffs.
