Inducted in 1986, Warner “Mike” Brittain was known locally as the father of Frederick County football through his leadership as a coach and promoter of sports. The Frederick Seneca Football Team was founded in the early 1940s. This program helped to reinstitute football at Frederick High School in 1946, following a 24-year absence dating back to 1923. Brittain was the complete coach, treating his athletes with respect and understanding, which fostered lifetime values. He was a valued community leader, devoted coach, and friend to all privileged to work with him.
