Eudora coach won’t soon forget landmark 200th win

October 25, 2007

Eudora coach Gregg Webb's 200th win actually came Sept. 14 in Eudora's 41-15 homecoming win against Wellsville, but the milestone was recognized Friday night following win No. 205.
The fans waited after the game as Webb was presented with a trophy and letters were read first from the Eudora Schools Administration and then from Pat Stiles, the Claflin High School athletic director, where Webb began his coaching career.
About a dozen former players from both Eudora and Claflin were on hand to greet Webb after the game.
Webb is 53-12 in six years at Eudora, having compiled five Frontier League championships, three district championships and three bi-district titles.
With an overall record of 205-36 in 21 years as a head coach, Webb made even more impressive marks while at Claflin. He made 18 playoff appearances and won five state championships in nine trips to the title game.
His team also held a record at 51 consecutive wins.
The actual 200 milestone game might have passed without note. Webb won't be forgetting it, however.
"It was special because on that particular night my son (Brynnen) won homecoming king, so that was how I remember it," he said.
