From 1956 to 1970, Marv Moorehead turned Upper Arlington into the top football program in Ohio. His last six teams’ records were 57-1 (the only loss to the #1 team); ranked in the top five in Ohio each year in Division I; and won three consecutive State Championships before retiring at age 39.
More important to Coach Moorehead than wins and losses, was transforming his players into “better boys.” Psychologists insist a boy cannot become a man without a mentor who teaches him how to become a man. Coach Moorehead mentored hundreds of impressionable young men, teaching them life lessons and helping to form their moral compass.
Tom Morgan, UAHS Class of 1967, has compiled several of Coach Moorehead's lessons and inspirational messages into one document.
