Allan Trimble announced his retirement after 22 years as the head football coach and Director of Football at Jenks High School today at an emotional press conference. 

Trimble guided the program to thirteen state championships and posted an overall record of 252-43 (.854). During his tenure, Trimble set multiple 6A state records including
  • Longest win streak (39 games),
  • Most consecutive state titles (6 from 1996-2001)
  • Most consecutive playoff victories (25).

Trimble is the most successful high school football coach in Oklahoma history and will be inducted into the Oklahoma Sports Hall of Fame in August.

“The legacy Allan Trimble is leaving stretches far beyond the football field,” stated Dr. Stacey Butterfield, Superintendent of Jenks Public Schools. “Although his name will always be associated with winning, his most important work was done by positively impacting the lives of his players and setting an incredible example of humility, courage, and perseverance. He has been an inspiration to our entire community, and the number of lives he has touched with his kindness and generosity is simply remarkable.”

The Jenks Football Program summed up the feelings of all Oklahoma Football fans in two words: Thank You.
