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."
