AUDIO: Jim France On Setting Wins Record

The Manchester Panthers are heading to the playoffs at full speed, and they did so with a 58-42 victory over Cuyahoga Valley Christian Academy. But a major footnote from that contest was it was the 382nd victory for head coach Jim France, and that made him the all-time winningest coach in Ohio high school football history.

France, who is also Manchester’s principal, joined the Ray Horner Morning Show to recap the win over CVCA, as well as the relief of achieving the record. It is a family affair at Manchester, with France’s son as the offensive coordinator and his grandson is the starting quarterback.

The Panthers finished the season 8-2, and will take on Fairless this Friday in the Division V playoffs.
