John McKissick wins 600th game

Summerville in South Carolina has one of the biggest legends in football history, Coach John McKissick.

He won his 600th game tonight over Ashley Ridge, 37-21, in front of an overflow crowd at Ashley Ridge. The Summerville players carried off Coach McKissick on their shoulders.

His team also clinched a winning record on the year at 6-4. McKissick is 86 and has won 600 against only 143 losses and 13 ties.

He started at Summerville in 1952. 

His teams have included NFL players like Stanford Jennings, Kevin Long and A.J. Green. What an accomplishment for him and for South Carolina football.
