History was made Friday night when John Curtis (Louisiana) head football coach JT Curtis became the second high school football coach in America to win 600 games. Curtis, the 2012 High School Football America National Coach of the Year, achieved the milestone with a 37-16 win over Archbishop Shaw.

Curtis is second on the nation’s all-time wins list with a lifetime mark of 600-72-6. The late John McKissick from South Carolina is the leader with 621 wins.

Several other high school football coaches reached milestones earlier this year.

In Virginia, Mike Smith of Hampton High School became the third coach behind McKissick and Curtis to reach 500 lifetime victories.

Reaching the 400 win plateau in 2021 were Alan Chadwick of Marist in Georgia and Dudley Hilton of Bell County in Kentucky
