Anton "Tony" Prasher

During his 30- year teaching career at Norton High School, he served as assistant coach , head coach and athletic director, before retiring in 1980. The '50s proved to be one of the best era's for Norton football. His 1954 team shared the Metro crown with Ellet and the following year his team won the undisputed championship. In 1959, the Panthers went undefeated, again claiming the Metro League title. Over a span of three years (1958-1960) Prasher's teams compiled 19 consecutive victories. The 1960 squad was undefeated with seven straight victories and in line to wrap up another championship when they fell in the final game of the season to Kent Roosevelt, denying Prasher of another league title. At Heidelberg College, he lettered four years as a guard on the Student Prince football squad and his teams lost only four games during his four year stint.
