Michigan’s “Winningest” High School Football Coach Honored
Michigan has a legend in its midst, Al Fracassa, retired Brother Rice High School football coach. Coach Fracassa holds the top spot in Michigan high school football history with the most wins of any high school coach, winning nine state championships, three in his last years of coaching.
On May 10, 2014, 800 friends, family and players gathered in Dearborn to celebrate his career and the impact he had during his 53 years of coaching. Players, parents, old friends and family toasted Coach Fracassa and his stellar career with a glass of Three Fires Wine.
Coach Fracassa finished his career with a record of 430-117-7 and holds the top spot in Michigan and #7 All-Time in the United States. He was more than just an outstanding football coach, he was a maker of men, putting God, family and education at the top of his list. We at Three Fires Wine had the honor of providing the wine to toast the football legend.
