Here is a great one from his college playing days! According to him he completed this pass.

I miss Coach Yeagle. He is a great coach and even better person. When my brother played for him and our father had a heart attack, Coach Yeagle and Coach Rash were the first 2 people to come see us an

That's Meihaus over at far right in the newspaper photo. No idea what number he was on the Crimson's team, but that's their whole 1940 team, from his senior year as a halfback.

Chuck Servino taught at Trinity for 33 years and spent much of that time on the football coaching staff, including head coach from 1995-1998. Trinity football was the 1997 4A runner-up under Servino. He was a running back (#23) at Trinity in the 1970's.

Will Wolford - started his career at St. Xavier High School as a player then went on to play college football at Vanderbilt. Was drafted in the 1st round of the '86 draft by the Buffalo Bills. He played in 3 Super Bowls, was a 3 time Pro Bowler, and was a 2nd team All Pro in '92. He played for 13 years in the NFL, a total of 191 games, and started every one of them. In my opinion, Wolford is one of the most underrated players in NFL history. After retiring from the NFL he came back home to coach his Alma Mater, St. X.

 

Here's former St. Xavier football coach Will Wolford from his JV days for the Tigers, and then a few photos from his time at Vanderbilt. Gotta love "The Tractor" on a tractor.

Ivan McGlone and Russell High School Football go hand in hand, but before he was head coach for the Red Devils (or for Vinson High School in West Virginia), McGlone was a fullback for the "Wayne Wonders" of Ceredo-Kenova High School in West Virginia.

Here's one that most folks around NKY ought to be familiar with. Former Beechwood head coach Mike Yeagle from his senior year at Beechwood in 1979. Yeagle was a defensive back, quarterback, and team captain.

I miss Coach Yeagle. He is a great coach and even better person. When my brother played for him and our father had a heart attack, Coach Yeagle and Coach Rash were the first 2 people to come see us and gave such encouraging words. I will never forget that.

I loved playing for Coach Yeagle. You wanted to run through a brick wall after his pre game speeches.  I agree with you him and Coach Rash are both great men.

That's funny.  Seeing Dale in his coaching days, I never would have pictured him as an offensive lineman.

If your last name is Jaggers, it's safe to assume that football plays a big role in your life. Here's Lincoln County & Mercer County head coach Marty Jaggers (son of Joe Jaggers who coached at Old Kentucky Home, Nelson County, Trigg County, Fort Knox and North Hardin, and father to Josh Jaggers, current head coach at LaRue County) during his years as an all-state quarterback at Trigg County. He went on to play college football at Western.
