Jaggers skippered the Wildcats to a 13-1 record in 1971 and the school’s first state football championship with a win over Class 1A power Lynch in the title game.
The Wildcats followed that up in 1972 with another 13-1 record and a dominating win over Pikeville in the state championship game.
The 1972 Wildcats averaged a school-record 34.2 points a game – a mark that stood for 28 years. The defense also allowed just 6.6 points a game, bettered only by the Wildcat teams of 1940 and 1984.
After leaving Trigg County in 1976, Jaggers went on to win state football titles at Fort Knox and retired as the state’s all time winningest coach with 292 victories.
Coach Jaggers was not able to attend the induction banquet. His award was accepted by his son and former Trigg County quarterback Marty Jaggers.
