G.A. Moore retires from high school football

G.A. Moore has retired as the all time winningest coach in the history of Texas high school football.

Moore finished out an outstanding career at Aubrey High School, but was best known for winning 8 state championships. He won 2 as the head coach of Pilot Point, then went on to win 6 more in Celina.

Moore racked up a 423-97 record over a 45 year career. He led Celina to 57 consecutive wins between 1998 and 2001.

His retirement comes just a week after Butch Ford retired at Celina, who replaced Moore as head coach of the Bobcats.

G.A. Moore is leaving the game at the age of 73.

    Not necessarily recruiting from bigger schools, more like the surrounding smaller schools. With that said, you still have to be able to coach them and G.A. did that very well.

    Well said Joe Daddy. He revolutionized the ways of high school recruiting.

    Football is losing one of the greatest coaches of all time. It was an honor and privilege to play for him during his time here in Sherman.
