Thursday night on the High School Football America Radio Show, we’ll chat with Kevin Wright, head coach at IMG Academy.

Today, on Rewind Wednesday we go back to November 3, 2011 when we spoke with Kevin’s dad, Larry “Bud” Wright, who had just become Indiana’s leader in football coaching victories with 369 wins at Sheridan High School.  Four years later, the elder Wright is still going strong, and closing-in on the exclusive 400 Wins Club.  Wright, who is celebrating his 50th year as a head coach, is seven victories away from becoming the 16th coach to hit the 400 milestone.
