Tim Flossie

As the son of legendary Akron high school football coach, Dan "Babe" Flossie, Tim Flossie had some big shoes to fill when he decided to follow in his father's footsteps. They've fit just fine! Tim has become one of Ohio's premier high school football coaches, turning two losing City Series programs into winners and becoming the first City Series coach to win a state title. In fact, he did it twice, leading Buchtel High to the Division II Championship in 1987 and again in 1988. Tim coached at Central However from 1979 until 1982, winning the City Series title with a 10-1 record in '81, two seasons after his first team ended a 29-game losing streak on the way to the state title with a 12-1 mark in '87. The Griffins were the first inner-city team to win an Ohio football championship and then followed up with another 12-1 record and the state title in '88. Through the first two games of 1993, Tim had an overall coaching record of 100-49-3, had won or shared seven City playoff or percentage titles as well as the two state titles. Flossie has coached four high school All-Americans and 18 of his Buchtel players have received scholarships to NCAA Division I teams. In 1987, Flossie was honored twice, first as Summit County Coach of the Year and the Dapper Dan Man of the Year.
