Former O'Brien Head Coach Inducted Into HOF

The Six-Man Football Coaches Association Hall of Fame inducted former O'Brien head coach C.H. Underwood today.

The ceremony took place during halftime of the Division I Six-Man All-Star Game in Wolfforth (The West won the game 64-8).

Underwood led O'Brien HS to the first-ever six-man state championship in 1972.

He added another state title as an assistant coach for 11-man football. After O'Brien HS merged with Knox City HS, the team won the Class A State Championship in 1983.

"It's always good to be remembered by your peers in a positive way," Underwood said. "When you think about it, those who played for you are responsible for everything that happened. It's been a blessing to be a part of their accomplishments."

Underwood pioneered the triple option offense in six-man football, one of many subjects he wrote about in 2005's Six Man Football, a 296-page book featuring both the history and strategy behind the sport. It's been called "a dissertation on six-man football."

    After watching the Dallas Cowboys run around in just helmets the first two days, it was finally time to hear the pads clash together.  Head Coach Jason Garrett stuck to his normal game plan of having the offense and defense practice separately to start camp, but today the pads went on and the competition ramped up. "This is when we can come out and actually show what we've worked on and show that we've put in work. It starts when guys walk in the locker room...
