Former DHS coach Goodwin entering Hall of Fame

Former Demopolis head football coach Doug Goodwin will be inducted into the Alabama High School Athletic Association Hall of Fame later this month.

A native of Talladega, Goodwin was graduated from Sylacauga High School in 1980. At Sylacauga, he played football for four years at defensive back, running back and linebacker. He also pitched and caught on the baseball team and played in the state East-West All-Star Game.

The AHSAA Hall of Fame inductee in the Class of 2015 attended Auburn University, graduating in 1984. At Auburn he was an invited walk-on at defensive back under head coaches Doug Barfield and Pat Dye.

Goodwin, 234-91 over his 27-year head football coaching career, moved to Demopolis in 1999 as athletic director and head football coach. In eight years at Demopolis, his record was 92-18, an impressive .836 winning percentage.

He had four consecutive undefeated regular seasons from 2002-05. Two of those teams played into the quarterfinals of the state playoffs.

The 2004 squad won the state championship with a perfect 15-0 record. The Tigers scored a state record 761 points that season. All eight of Goodwin’s Demopolis teams made the playoffs.
