Sheridan Has The 'Wright' Stuff - 400 Wins

(10-8-16) How do you keep a Head Coaching job for nearly 50 years at the same school? Larry 'Bud' Wright at Sheridan (Indiana) has the right formula. Wright put the cherry on the top of his career with his 400th win 49-6 over Taylor on Friday night. With the win Wright is now 400-187-2 in his coaching career. He has the most wins of any coach in the Hoosier State.

Behind Wright in Indiana, the two coaches next in line have both retired:

 2.  Jerry Brewer* 	Jasper 	368 	105 	 2
 3.  Chris Geesman* 	Penn 	339 	 66 	 3

Wright and his Blackhawks have played in the IHSAA State Finals, eleven times and won nine of those Class A title games, in 1980, 1984, 1987, 1988, 1992, 1998, 2005, 2006, and 2007. Wright has also been to 10 semi-state, 14 regional, and 19 sectional championships.

During his tenure from 2005 to 2008 the Blackhawks won 44 straight games.

Wright was inducted into the Indiana High School Football Coaches Hall of Fame 14 years ago in 2002.

Wright's 400 wins also makes him one of the top all-time coaches in the NFHS record book.

Wright is in his mid-70's and still going strong, 400 wins was on his bucket list, one last item in his storied career. What will his future be at Sheridan, the next couple of weeks might decide that.

One thing we know about Sheridan football over the years, they always had the 'WRIGHT' stuff.
