#8 - Skyline coach Roger DuPaix retires Next » 3 of 10 « Prev

After 35 years as head coach, 301 career victories and eight state championships, Skyline football coach Roger DuPaix, 70, called it a career earlier this year to serve an LDS Church mission with his wife.



DuPaix won his 301st and last game on Oct. 28, 2011, but he didn't announce his retirement as the Eagles' head coach until January 2012. He's one of 92 coaches nationally to win 300 games in their career.



DuPaix spent the first nine years of his coaching career at Highland and the last 26 at Skyline. He racked up a 301-112 record during those 35 years, including a 67-25 playoff record.



His last state title came in 2005 when he guided the fourth-seeded Eagles to an unlikely championship.
