Who are your Mt. Rushmore of your coaches at your school?

I saw something on ESPN that mentioned the "Mt. Rushmore " of athletes for a particular city or sport.... So with that being said

What is your schools Mt. Rushmore of coaches/sports?

Football only:

Louisville: Howard "Peg" Wilson, "Hap" Lillick, Paul Starkey, and Paul Farrah.

St. Thomas Aquinas (Louisville, OH): Tom Welcsh, Frank Sakal, Jack Rose, and Tim Budd.

All sports speaking, Aquinas's "Mt. Rushmore", in my opinion, would probably have Al Pete (boys basketball), Jerry Michna (cross country), and Rose on it. It's a tough call for the fourth spot. It could be Joe Eaton (basketball), Matt Hackenberg (basketball), Angelo Pederzolli (boys track), Randy Crawford (girls track), Matt Reneker (cross country), or Terry Murphy (boys golf).

Plain Township.......Bob Commings..Scott Garcia..Jim Reichenbaugh..Jack Greynolds II (Basketball) If I would of thrown Jack Rose in there all 4 football coaches either played or coached at Massillon before becoming Eagles. Can't believe I forgot Joe Gilhousen (Back to back state championships in baseball) and Gary Isler ( 3 straight girls final 4 ).

Canton Central Catholic

Football Only:
Lowell Klinefelter
John McVay
Jeff Lindesmith
Either Joel Spiker or Rey Dempsey. Tough call for that 4th spot. Spiker has the highest win percentage in school history (.850) but only coached 2 years while Dempsey coached 6 years and gave the program direction leading into Spiker's 2 years.

All Sports:
Lowell Klinefelter - 2 state titles and most wins of any football coach in either school or Stark County history. Every bit as great of a chemistry teacher as he was a football coach.

Doug Miller - 3 state titles and 2 state runner-ups and over 700 career wins in baseball plus another 300 wins combined in boys and girls basketball and a state runner-up in girls basketball.

John Wagner - 2 state team titles and 2 state team runner-ups plus other team qualifications in golf, 1 OTCA team title in tennis, and 4 individual state titles in tennis plus numerous other state qualifiers. Great coach and an exceptional English teacher.

Very difficult to come up with only one more, but I'll stick with the big trophy theme and choose current principal and golf coach Dave Oates. His golf teams have produced 1 state team title and 5 state team runner-up finishes along with numerous other state tournament appearances since he took over in 1997.

Coldwater-Lou Brunswick (baseball) 1959-1993. 750-165 (82%) and 5 state titles.

John Reed (football). 1995-2009. 168-31 (84%). 2 State Championships. Coach Reed, who passed away months after the 2009 season due to cancer, built the Cavalier program to where it is today. Took a school with one prior playoff appearance, a loss, and led them to the postseason his first season. After missing in 1996 they have been back every year since although this year it will be very difficult to make it to week 11

Chip Otten (football). 2010-PRESENT. Believe he is 94-11 (89%) 6 seasons, 4 titles and 2 runners up. Taking over for an icon can be very difficult but Coach has done an amazing job in raising the bar even more.


Charlie Maier (1979-1998). Girls basketball. 80% winning percentage and led the program to 2 state basketball titles.

Who would you put on Colerain's?

I would say Kerry Coombs without a doubt. George Washington of Cardinal football.

Ron Russo? No longer at school but led girls CC to four state titles and a runner up in 5 years.

I can think of other coaches who were certainly loved/admired but did not have outstanding teams per se.

Bolden has been very successful in keeping what Coombs built going.

Colussi? We have not had many basketball coaches stick around long enough to accomplish much.

Moddletown Coaching Mt Rushmore

Here are my Middletown Middie Coaching Mt Rushmore. The first 4 came off the top of my head. Was not sure if there could be 2 in one sport, so it took me a while and actually found number 5 when I was searching for stats on the other 4. They all are deserving with either state championship, Ohio High School Hall.of Fame and great accompishments in their respective sports.


1. Paul Walker Basketball Coach-1946-76 (562-136 .805 Winning Record) / Football Coach-1963-(6-2-2)

*Won five State Championships in 1947, 1952, 1953, 1956 and 1957) and one State Runner-up.

*Walker coached the APís No. 1 team five times

*Named the coach of the year three times and was named coach of the year in the country 1973-74 by the National Athletic Coaches Association

*Inducted into the National High School Sports Hall of Fame in 1986

* Ohio High School Athletic Association invested in a life membership, honoring him at the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 1988.

*Middletown Gym Named after him

2. Glenn Tiger Ellison-Football Coach-1945-62- (124-46-9, .693 Winning Record)
http://articles.philly.com/1990-09-0...-run-and-shoot

*Created the Run and Shoot Offense after he went 1-4-1 facing Middies first Losing swason in 47yrs

*Middies averaged five touchdowns a game and won their last four games. Four years later, during a season in which it finished 9-1, Middletown scored 434 points, registering 98 points in one game and 70 in another.

* In 1965, Tiger Ellison wrote the book Run-and-Shoot: The Offense of the Future. "We discarded our tanks and climbed upon our motorcycles," Ellison wrote in his book. "We found that motion on the fields created emotion in the stands. People came to the ballpark."

* 57-year-old Mouse Davis -Read Tiger's Book and took the run-and-shoot to each of his coaching stops: to Portland State, to the Toronto Argonauts of the CFL, to the Houston Gamblers and the Denver Gold of the USFL.
*Davis took his System to rhe Detroit Lions and Jack Pardee used it in Houston with Warren Moon

*1961-Ohio High School Coach of thre Year
*He produced 8 All Ohio QB's
* In Ohio High School Football Coaches Hall of Fame
"Middie Football Complex Named after him

3. Elmo Lingrel-Football Coach / Athletic Director-1923-44 AD-62 (149-32-19, .745 Winning Record)

*1934 team went 10-0 and was the 1st Middie team that went 10-0 and the last team to go 10-0 untill Jason Krause's team in 2010

* 1936 team went 8-0 and remarkably did not allow any opponent to score the entire season.The Middies scored 190 points while giving up none.

* In Ohio High School Football Coaches Hall of Fame

*His Teams Went Undefeated 4 times and had only one less several other times as well

*Elmo introduced Night Football in the fall of 1934

*Was instrumental in Middletown's Construction of 9500 seat stadium (Barnitz) and 3600 seat Gymnasium (Wade E. Miller)

4. Floyd Horton Track & Field Coach-2000s

*Although he had some great athletes he realized what his team's weaknesses were and recruited some students to come out for the field events and move some sprinters to hurdles, so his team could generate more points to win State and his team did that in 2002. He was a great motivator and a great Coach. He brought back the first team state championship since Paul Walker in Basketball.

State Placements
2000 3rd place
2001 3rd place
2002 STATE CHAMPS
2003 2nd place
2004 4th place

When I saw this thread I thought"They're going to have to get a bigger mountain" for Massillon. That list is far and away more impressive than any school anywhere period. You can make fun of "to many heads" but I'll take that list anytime!

For sure, but the point of the thread is limiting it to 4, thus spurring debate and discussion when there inevitably is some disagreement.

As usual with things involving Massillon, a little fact checking is necessary to separate the wheat from the chaff -

Earl Bruce only coached there for 2 years

Tom Harp only coached there for 2 years

Don James never coached Massillon

John McVay never coached Massillon

Bob Seaman only coached 3 years and one of those was a sub .500 season
his career winning percentage is just under that of Jason Hall who was fired last year

Lee Tressel only coached there for 2 years

What fact checking was provided for the bolded? I can't find anything you fact checked regarding the 4 bolded names in firewatch's post.

Since they coached at Massillon for such a short period of time, I don't think creating a memorial (Mount Rushmore) would be appropriate. I believe the assumption of the thread starter is basing the decision on what was done while coaching at each high school, not what was accomplished later in life.

Are you going to give me any credit for finding out that firewatch included guys that didn't even coach at Massillon?

There were no parameters set in the OP, so whatever you feel appropriate is irrelevant. Even if there were parameters set, you still provided zero fact checking for those 4. You haven't answered my question. What did firewatch incorrectly state about those 4?

I did, hence why I singled out the bolded.

Mack is like the jilted girlfriend who got kicked to the curb. And now hangs out in the neighbors bushes watching everything you do. Fact checking an answer to a hypothetical question. What a goof.
