Hunt leaves behind lasting legacy in Sherman

The Sherman Bearcat family and all of Texoma lost a legend earlier this week. Ed Hunt made such an impact on so many. He was a winner in every sense of the word.

Hunt was one of the most impactful coaches, and people, in the history of Sherman High School. His tenure spanned over 4 decades.

Hunt coached all of the legends at Sherman High. From future NFL stars, to coaches, and college athletic directors. He had a hand in all of their success.

Before Hunt joined the staff with the Bearcats, he was the head coach at Sherman's Frederick Douglass High School. Sherman was segregated in 1964, and that's when Hunt led Douglass to the state championship.

By 1967, Sherman schools had integrated. That process had already been underway, thanks in large part to Ed Hunt. He was always about bringing people together.

Winning was a big part of Ed Hunt's life, but it was always about so much more than that. It was about turning kids into men, and nobody did it better than Hunt.

Ed Hunt passed away at the age of 84.
