Herb Daugherty, Sr.

A “Can-Do Man” who combined a dynamic personality with a desire to establish football as a county sport, Herb Daugherty, Sr., founded the Brunswick Boosters in 1966 to raise money, and in 1968 fielded his first team. While coaching for seven years, Daugherty added a ninth-grade program, promoted a midget league, raised money to build a press box, and installed stadium lights. His achievements were unprecedented and inspired other county schools to add football. Daugherty ended his career in 1979 as the “father of county football,” respected by people from all walks of life and worthy of emulation by all.
