I had a wonderful experience,” says Marie LaComb about her physical therapy.  “I can’t say enough. They are the best. You can tell they enjoy their job.

Coach Randy Ragsdale Inducted into the AHSAA Sports Hall of Fame

Coach Randy Ragsdale Revised

The following is an excerpt from :  There is Much More to ‘Coach Rags’ Than Wins and Losses can Measure by Bill Plott, AHSAA Historian. To view the entire article, click here. 

To fully measure the impact of Alabama Sports Hall of Fame Class of 2018 inductee Randy Ragsdale, one needs to look past his 242 football coaching victories.

That’s the opinion of those who know him, including Trinity Presbyterian High School’s head of school Kerry Palmer. “There is so much more to ‘Coach Rags’ than metrics can measure,” Palmer said. “Randy Ragsdale is one of the finest human beings I have ever known. He truly loves and cares for all of the students at our school – not just ‘his boys’. He learns every name, knows every relationship and demonstrates real interest in each individual student. Randy’s positivity, enthusiasm and optimism are always present and are contagious.”

Ragsdale was inducted into the Alabama High School Sports Hall of Fame as a member of the Class of 2018 at the Hall of Fame banquet March 19 at the Montgomery Renaissance Hotel and Convention Center.

A native of Conyers, a suburban city near Atlanta, Ragsdale attended Rockdale County High School, graduating in 1975. After an outstanding high school career, he received a football scholarship to Jacksonville State University. At JSU he earned All-American honors starting at tackle for three years and played in the NCAA Division II National Championship game in 1978 as a senior.

Upon graduation the following spring, he accepted a position at north Clayton High School in Georgia where he was an assistant coach for three years. He then moved to Fayette County (GA) where he coached from 1982-85.

In 1985 he moved to Alabama and joined the Northview High School coaching staff as defensive coordinator at the Dothan school. His impact was felt immediately as Northview won the 1985 Class 6A state championship.

After four years at Northview, Ragsdale moved to Trinity Presbyterian as head football coach, a position he held through the 2016 season. Although he announced his retirement from coaching, he continues to serve in the Middle School Dean position he has held since 2006.
With his retirement from football, Ragsdale legacy includes:

·         He compiled an overall head-coaching record of 242-86.

·         His teams qualified for the state playoffs 25 times in 28 seasons.

·         Trinity was 15-0 in 2003 and won the Class 4A state championship.

·         The Wildcats compiled a 45-game regular-season win streak from 2000-05.

·         His teams won 13 Region titles with an overall 116-23 region record.

·         He served as a coach in the Alabama-Mississippi All-Star game, was head coach in the North-South All-Star Game in 2010 and assistant coach in 1997 and 2004; and also coached a team in the Down under Bowl in Australia.

·         He was named 2003 State Coach of the Year and was selected three times Metro Coach of the Year.

·         Received the prestigious Herman L. “Bubba” Scott Lifetime Achievement Award from the Fellowship of Christian Athletes in 2017 for his positive impact as a coach and commitment to his faith.

Todd Parsons, president of the Trinity Presbyterian Board of Trustees, added, “Coach Ragsdale put the Trinity football program on the map and compiled a record on the field of play that may never again be matched by a coach at a single school in Montgomery. Several members of our Trustee Board played for Coach Ragsdale and admire and respect him greatly.”

Coach Randy Ragsdale is one of 11 inductees to the Alabama High School Hall of Fame, Class of 2018. For a complete list of other 2018 inductees, please click here.

COACH ANN SCHILLING INDUCTED INTO AHSAA SPORTS HALL OF FAME

Coach Ann Schilling

The following is an excerpt from: Perseverance and Passion Has Highlighted Ann Schilling’s Journey to Hall of Fame, by Bill Plott, AHSAA Historian. To read the complete article, click here.


Ann Schilling’s journey to the Alabama High School Sports Hall of Fame started at the hands of a master. The Class of 2018 inductee played under the renowned Coach Becky Dickinson at McGill-Toolen Catholic High School. Coach Dickinson was in the very first class of inductees in 1991.

In a letter nominating Schilling to the Hall of Fame, Coach Dickinson wrote: “Before her high school tenure with me even began, Ann fell during summer team camp and broke her right arm. Other athletes might have let that discourage them, but not Ann. She stayed at summer camp and continued to work out. She came to every volleyball practice and game, taking statistics and stepping in wherever she could. She even taught herself to shoot a basketball left-handed.”

A native of Mobile, Schilling went from McGill-Toolen to Auburn University where she played basketball for four years, walking on and earning a scholarship by her sophomore year. She stayed a fifth year at Auburn to play volleyball when the program was reinstated.

With college-level varsity experience in basketball and volleyball under her belt, she accepted the position of physical education teacher, basketball and volleyball coach at Bayside Academy in 1987. It was a perfect union. Schilling is now in her 31st season of teaching and coaching at Bayside.

That career, by the numbers, includes the following:

  • 23 state volleyball championships, four runners-up
  • 16 consecutive state champions 2002-2017, an Alabama record and second in the nation, and 19 in 20 years since 1998
  • More than 1,400 wins, first among state active coaches and second in the state all-time
  • 6 Mobile Press Register Super 12 Coach of the Year awards
  • 5 Birmingham News Coach of the Year awards
  • 7 selections as AHSAA all-star coach
  • National Federation of High Schools Volleyball Coach of the Year award in 2010

Additionally, Schilling has received two John L. Finley Awards for Superb Achievement as a coach and an R. L. Lindsay Service Award for club volleyball. She is founder and director of the Eastern Shore Volleyball Club.

She was elected to the Bayside Academy Hall of Fame in 2004 and to the Mobile Sports Hall of Fame in 2017.

Coach Dickinson said she saw Schilling develop and grow into a superb leader. “Looking back at her outstanding career, it may come as a surprise that Ann was not a born leader,” Dickinson said. “During her senior year, the captain of the volleyball team missed one of our tournaments, and I watched as my team floundered, leaderless.   A few timeouts later, when I asked Ann and her fellow senior to take charge, I watched her step onto the court and step into her own. After that, nothing Ann did surprised me.

“I was not surprised when she started and didn’t stop winning state championships. I was not surprised when Ann’s peers repeatedly recognized her coaching ability by voting her Coach of the Year. I was not surprised that she learned to take relatively unskilled young women and teach them game skills while building their confidence and leadership skills.”

And it is no surprise that Ann Schilling has now been inducted into the AHSAA Sports Hall of Fame Class of 2018.

Coach Ann Schilling is one of 11 inductees to the Alabama High School Hall of Fame, Class of 2018. For a complete list of other 2018 inductees, please click here.
