Hall of Fame induction: 2000
George was an outstanding track and field coach for 31 years starting at Laurel in 1927 and continuing at Wilmington High School from 1931 until he retired following the 1957 season.
At Wilmington H.S., he produced four state championship teams (1949, 1950, 1951, and 1954) and numerous individual state champions. In the 1930’s and early 1940’s, his teams competed primarily against Pennsylvania schools. He was one of the true pioneers of track and field in Delaware. For many years, he encouraged the development of track and field in Delaware, and helped plan and run meets along with Frank Newlin, another Hall of Fame inductee, at Baynard Stadium.
