    Default More impressive Todd Dodge or Steve Lineweaver

    What is more impressive to you, Todd Dodge winning multiple state championships and changing the way high school football is played in the state of Texas but doing it at one school and not really having much success anywhere else. Or what Steve Lineweaver has done winning multiple state championships and doing it at multiple schools. Just a thought both are great coaches but which is more impressive to you.

    Well if you were to ask Coach Lineweaver he'd probably tell you he's not as good a coach as Eddy Peach, so the man himself may defer to Dodge, he's as humble as they come. But if y'all should remember anything Coach Lineweaver ain't done yet...it's just 3 and counting....

    Dodge. 4 out of 5, and 3 in a row is unprecedented at the 5A level.

    Apples or oranges, oranges or apples...both are impressive in their own right.

    I will not dignify this thread with a response. Both are special in their own way.

    Wait......I just did.

    They both are good at what they do. I wouldn't say one is better than the other. They do what works for their program.

    I love them both, period. Dodge's impact was the most historic and made the bigger splash, one that may never be equaled. Lineweaver is the most underappreciated, great coach of recent history and, perhaps, all time. He's not done a Trinity. The man is simply one of the best program builders of all time. At Carroll, he ran the offensive side of the ball, make no mistake. We were near unstoppable. Folks forget about his three rings from Carroll when they give his total. You know what Commerce was before Steve Lineweaver arrived? They were a team that got beat 56-0 in the first round of the playoffs, consistently. I know because it was us who spanked that arse a few times. Lineweaver arrives and all that stops. He was but a handful of points from having most of Sealy's titles. So it comes as no suprise that he took a campus like Trinity's, unified it and raised it to a new level. No offense to the long time Trojans, I know you've had some good teams in the past, but no coached has ever harvested that campus like Lineweaver has.Whether you pick a side or stand on the fence, there is no wrong choice here.

    Not to be a grinch this evening, but I think I am correct in stating that Lineweaver has two rings from Carroll. He was gone for the third, even though it was still most definitely his offense out there. That aside, both he and Dodge have proven themselves tobe great high school coaches.

    Lineweaver is 66. I wonder how many more seasons he will coach.

    Not that special in the split title era. Austin Reagan won 3 titles in 4 years at the top level, which was very impressive when you consider only district champions made the playoffs, so every win was over a district champion, not 3rd or 4th place teams.

    I think both have proven themselves as winners. Did respect the discipline Todd Dodges teams had coming on the field to warm-up.

    Both are great and HOF guys........as long as Coach Lineweaver doesn't wear that floral shirt. My eyes still hurt from that.

    Both men are impressive on and off the field.
    However what Lineweaver has accomplished as a body of work to me is more impressive.
    Not taking anything away from TD but SL has done it at multiple schools.

    I love TD but to say he changed the way Texas HS football was played is a little too much.
    There were teams that were running the spread with precision before TD did, take a peek at what Briles was doing at Stephenville and Harrell at Ennis before TD was doing it.
    He may have done it better(debatable) but he was certainly not the first.

    How did he change the way high school football was played in this state? Btw....I gotta pick Lineweaver. He was able to have success at multiple schools like others have said and of course he won those championships at Trinity in 5A. Although they were in 3A, SLC had a lot of titles and a winning tradition before TD came to town. So, I think Lineweaver's record and success over the years have been more impressive.
