Presentation at a ceremony honoring Coach John Outlaw after his 300th career win

Presentation at a ceremony honoring Coach John Outlaw after his 300th career win

When John Outlaw was born in Ozark, Arkansas, no on predicted that this cute little boy would go on to become a legendary high school football coach.  Who knew that he also loved baseball?

Beginning his high school coaching career in Arkadelphia, Arkansas, where he won two state championships, later moving to Sherman, Texas with new successes, Coach Outlaw finally arrived in Lufkin, Texas in 1995.

Less than one percent of high school football coaches in America ever achieve the 300 win status.  Coach Outlaw is one of those few.

His career stats are 302 wins, 89 loses, and 3 ties.

In the 83 history of Lufkin Panther football before Coach Outlaw, the Panthers had won a total of 14 playoff games.  Since Coach's arrival in 1995, the Panthers have added an additional 27 playoff victories.  Coach's record in Lufkin is 174-45-1 for a 79% winning record.

Coach Outlaw's teams have won 20 district championships in his career, and include 2 state championships, the latest honored here tonight.

Though his statistics are impressive, his competitive spirit is exceeded only by his compassion for our children.

Tonight we say "thank you, Coach Outlaw," for treating each of our children as though they were your own!

Coach Outlaw is joined at midfield tonight with three of his superintendents during his career.  Presenting him with a special trophy for his incredible accomplishments are Dr. Michael McDougal from Sherman, and Mr. David Sharp, and Mr. Roy Knight of Lufkin.

Coach often comments that "When your last name is Outlaw, you had better be good at something!"  WE KNOW what that something is in Lufkin , Texas.

Please join me in this salute to our Head Coach, John Outlaw!
