COACH JIM REYNOLDS
Michigan: Detroit football coaching legend King's Reynolds, has 41-years of coaching.One of Detroit's' finest is now on the sidelines. But football has been in James Reynolds Jr.'s blood for virtually all 64 of the years he's been living, and the retired coach from Detroit Martin Luther King plans to be involved in the game he loves as much as possible.He's the only coach to lead a Detroit Public School League (PSL) team to a state title, and retired a few days before the season started in late August.Reynolds, 64, coached King for 35 years and had a 253-112 record. His team won the Division 2 title in 2007. King was 14-0 that season and beat Midland 47-21 in the championship game at Detroit's Ford Field.“We won many championships,” Reynolds said. “I had good people around me and some good kids.”Reynolds, who grew up in Georgia, had a lot of success at Detroit King in the past 23 seasons. Since 1986, the school won nine PSL titles and reached the final six other times.He later came to coach football as an assistant at Detroit Persching, Detroit Central and Detroit McKenzie before starting his 35-year stint at King. He had 41-year coaching run overall.Co. Reynolds was able to turn King into a Detroit powerhouse. Reynolds recalls that as a coach, his emphasis was on defense first. Football players now are better than they were 30 years ago, he admits.“But we had some good players all along the line,” he says.Perhaps the best player Reynolds coached at Martin Luther King was Darnell Dickerson, an all-stater in football, basketball and baseball who played football at the University of Pittsburgh.” Reynolds “I've been doing it all my life as a player or a coach.”
