Coach–In a high school football coaching career extending from 1933 to 1972, this inspirational builder of smaller town champions achieved an admirable record of 243 games won, 66 lost and 14 ties. His career figures gained a standing in the National High School Sports Record Book under football career wins and football career winning percentage. While yet a young football coach at Allen High School during the fall of 1934, he led the blue and gold-clad Eagles to a number one ranking in the state. But it was within Perkins County at Grant High School where Ed Haenfler reached his peak while pushing the red and white uniformed Plainsmen into gridiron greatness.
