SALUTING JOHN MCKISSICK, LEGENDARY SUMMERVILLE HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL COACH, WHO HAS WON MORE FOOTBALL GAMES THAN ANY OTHER COACH IN HISTORY.
Whereas, John McKissick is truly a living legend; and
Whereas, he is the head coach of the Summerville High School football team and holds the record for winning more games than any other coach in history; and
Whereas, Coach McKissick is much more than a superb football coach; he is also an educator of the highest caliber; and
Whereas, he has devoted his life to teaching young men not only the skills of a tough, competitive sport but also life skills; under him more than a thousand young men have learned the importance of hard work, dedication, and the value of team effort; and
Whereas, Coach McKissick has served as a genuine role model for young men and is revered by them for his fairness and his firmness; and
Whereas, his highly successful winning record in high school football, his unequaled knowledge of the sport, and his wonderful personal qualities have served to spread his outstanding reputation all across this great American land of ours; and
Whereas, the 1993 football season was Coach McKissick's forty-second at Summerville High; during this period of time, his Greenwave football teams have won twenty-three conference titles and nine state championships; he has been inducted into the South Carolina Athletic Coaches Association Hall of Fame; and, during the 1993 season, he achieved every coach's dream, the record for most career victories, with a record of 412 wins, 86 losses, and 13 ties; and
Whereas, Summerville High School, Dorchester School District Two, the Town of Summerville, and the State of South Carolina have benefited positively from the achievements of John McKissick, a man and a coach who is most highly deserving of recognition. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the Senate, the House of Representatives concurring:
That the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina, by this resolution, salutes John McKissick, legendary Summerville High School football coach, who has won more football games than any other coach in history.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to Coach McKissick.
