J.T. Curtis of John Curtis Christian School in Louisiana and Charles “Corky” Rogers of The Bolles School in Florida will be inducted later this year into the National Federation of State High School Association‘s Hall of Fame — the two have won 986 high school football games between them.
Curtis is second on America’s all-time wins list with an overall record of 542-58-6. In 46 seasons, Curtis has led his school to 26 Louisiana state football championships. In 2012, John Curtis shared High School Football America’s “mythical” national championship with Allen High School in Texas.
Rogers, who has won 444 games during his career, is sixth on the all-time coaching victories list. Rogers, whose overall record at Robert E. Lee High School and The Bolles School is 444-80-1, has won 11 Florida state football titles.
The NFHS will also be honoring the late Joe Pangrazio, Sr., who was an Ohio high school football official for 45 years at this year’s induction ceremony in July.
