Retired Arlington Lamar football coach Eddy Peach is among five inductees whose names will be added to the Texas High School Coaches Association’s Hall of Honor, the organization announced Monday.
“It’s not something you dream about, you don’t ever think about happening, so you feel blessed when something like that does happen,” Peach said. “There’s a lot of people involved in accomplishing what we’ve accomplished. So you’re proud for a lot of people.”
Peach, 75, was the head football coach of the Lamar Vikings for 39 years, from the school’s opening in 1970 until 2009. His coaching record is 310-123-6, according to THSCA.
