HALL OF FAME
Pete Adkins Award Winners
November 28, 2012Missouri Football Coaches Association
Coach Adkins worked the sidelines of Jefferson City High School for 44-seasons accumulating a record of 405-60-4, an amazing 86.8 winning percentage, 9-State Championshis, and owner of a 71-game winning streak. Coach Adkins was instrumental in the founding of the MFCA and served as our president from 1980-1982.
In honor of legendary Missouri high school football coach Pete Adkins, the MFBA recognizes a coach who has tapped into the power of influence he has in his community.
The winner will be selected by the MFCA Adkins Award Committee, including Coach Adkins, and will also be nominated to receive the American Football Coaches Association's Power of Influence Award. Nominations will remain active until the nominee is selected or retires from coaching.
Nominees must be a current high school head football coach in Missouri who have an established record of positively influencing those in his program and his community. While this award is not based on wins and losses or conference and state titles it is understood that coaches of powerful influence have longevity and success.
We recognized our first recipient of this award at our 2010 Hall of Fame Banquet. It was a special privilege to have Coach Adkins himself present the award to winner, Steve Hancock, Branson.
