1991 Inductees

Chuck Curtis

Chuck Curtis coached the Garland High School football team to Texas Class AAAA State championships in 1963 and 1964. His coaching feats at Garland, together with his guiding Jacksboro to the Class AA State championship in 1962, made him one of the very few Texas coaches to have won three State titles. Chuck's 1963 Owls won 13 games, with only a non-district tie to blemish their record, and defeat Corpus Christi Miller for the State championship. No longer having any element of surprise to its advantage, the 1964 Garland team fought to another 13 victories, suffering only a single setback in district play, and defeated Galena Park for a second consecutive State title.
