Sellers receives national honor
February 28, 2003
Manogue High School football coach Joe Sellers has been selected to the National High School Athletic Coaches Association Hall of Fame.
Sellers, the winningest coach in Nevada high school football history, is the first coach from the state to earn the distinction. He will be inducted next summer in Tulsa, Okla.
During his unprecedented coaching career, Sellers has won 231 games against only 41 defeats. During that span, Sellers won seven state championships while coaching Wooster and added his eighth title last fall in his second season at Manogue.
Sellers was raised in Bakersfield, Calif., graduating from Bakersfield High in 1963. After playing two seasons of football at Bakersfield Junior College, Sellers concluded his collegiate career by serving as a defensive and offensive lineman at the University of Nevada.
