Byrd Whigham wins another

Byrd Whigham was a man who combined great passion with intelligence and desire to win to achieve incredible success on the football field at both Wildwood High School and Melbourne High School, where I played for him. A unique personality who inspired me and our talented team to achieve something never done before or since at Melbourne High School. Win the Florida State High School football championship.

Sorry to hear about the passing of Coach Whighman. Hewas a great coach coached me to the state championship in Florida and He also coached me at Auburn . He was one hell of a football coach. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.Johnny Valentine

Coach Whigham was an incredible Football Coach. His talents and attention to detail helped to mold so many of his former players for their future lives. I will always be appreciative that he came into my life. RIP Coach.....Mac Steen
