I am just glad that I have the opportunity to watch my son play on this thanksgiving weekend . There are not many parents (except for Alcoa lol) that get this chance . Most work their butts off all year and if they are lucky, make it to the playoffs . Whether we pull off the miracle and compete or get “boat raced” as so many of you have predicted, I will still be proud of my team . Go Bobcats !!!

Nothing like those Thursday night walk throughs on your home field on Turkey Day.  Remember that feeling and do everything you can to have another Thursday walk thru. GO CATS!!

Well let's take a look if we may and I'm sure you will have a different opinion when you see the numbers for yourself.  

 

Coach Rankin currently sits at 453 Overall Wins.  That's currently good enough for #11 all-time and #7 among head coaches who are still listed as active.

 

Last Year Coach Rankin moved past:

  • John Herrington (MI) = 443 Wins
  • Jack Henzee (PA) = 444 Wins
  • Bill Castle (FL) = 450 Wins

 

The following coaches are no longer listed as 'active' and will probably also be passed by Gary Rankin by the end of 2021:

  • George Curry (PA) = 455 Wins
  • Charles "Corky" Rogers (FL) = 466 Wins

 

If I were to guess I would say that Gary Rankin will probably end the 2021 High School Football Season as the #7 ranked winningest coach of all-time.  In 2022 he will keep moving forward and take over the #6 spot by the time that season is said and done.  Of course that's just a guess and I'm basing it on Alcoa's run of success that seems like it's never going to end.  

 

Now here is a look at the All-Time Winningest Coaches for your viewing pleasure:

  • #1 John McKissick (SC) = 621 Wins
  • #2 J.T. Curtis (LA)* = 598 Wins
  • #3 Mike Smith (VA)* = 498 Wins
  • #4 Bob Hyland (WI)* = 482 Wins
  • #5 Phillip Danaher (TX)* = 480 Wins
  • #6 Larry Campbell (GA) = 477 Wins
  • #7 Charles "Corky" Rogers (FL) = 466 Wins
  • #8 Phillip Haywood (KY)* = 456 Wins
  • #8 Jim Roth (PA)* = 456 Wins
  • #10 George Curry (PA) = 455 Wins
  • #11 Gary Rankin (TN)* = 453 Wins
  • #12 Bill Castle (FL)* = 450 Wins

If the coach is listed in BOLD and has a * next to his name then he is still active as a head football coach.  

 

I posted this over the summer for all of you "Gary Rankin Haters" out there who like to throw shade at what he has done through the years.  If Alcoa wins the Class 3A State Championship this year Coach Rankin will end the year as the #8 winningest high school football coach of all-time.

Probably one of the reasons Alcoa takes on 6A powerhouse Maryville every year as well as the best that will play them from all classes during the regular season. When the playoffs get here, the goal is gold.When Alcoa has the amount of  students to move up,they will.I understand what your saying but it's not Alcoa's job to find a place to lose more often but other schools their size job to get better. I've seen Alcoa have down years in the past and not win it all.Nobody cared then outside of Alcoa.Shoot,some folks in 4A or 5A would be crying foul if they moved up now and took someones playoff spot.Several years ago,one of my kids was batting and got under a baseball but it still went off the 350 fence .The coach of the 13 year old all-star team recruited him that night because he didn't think that was possible at that age and  it not even a solid hit.I told him my boys age and he said, I'm sorry he doesn't meet the age  requirements.I didn't see a big deal but apparently a year makes a difference . Anyway, Alcoa is playing where they are supposed to  because of their size.

 

 

Totally agree.  No argument with any of this.

    • That is why I use the word if my friend! And the only reason I made comment is because I've had texts and calls asking me if they thought he would be interested in the job.
    • This year's sophomore class is pretty solid, too.  And I don't think that just because JJ isn't at Powell any longer that those who have chosen to go to Powell will suddenly go to Bearden.  Powell's coaching staff reputation is solid for being "players coaches" with or without JJ.   Bearden is my alma mater and I still pull for them and want this experiment to be successful.   That said, there is a lot of difference culturally between Bearden and Powell.  JJ at Bearden or no, it's not a slam dunk that kids requesting transfers will want to go there.   Plus anybody transferring without physically moving in to the zone wouldn't be eligible in 2022.  
    • I haven't seen it posted anywhere yet  
    • What’s the word on the North East job it seems they’re in no rush to hire someone. Which would be a shame for those kids.
    • Checking with you OR fans. OR beat DB last season in the Sectional by 3 or 4 points. I remember that OR team started either all or almost all seniors...right? How many players from last years team is back this season?  Do you expect OR to be a Region finalist team?
