High school football: Longtime Jenks coach Allan Trimble dies from battle with ALS

JENKS — Legendary Jenks football coach Allan Trimble died Sunday morning following a three-year battle with ALS, Jenks Public Schools announced on social media.

Trimble was 56.

Trimble was the state’s most successful high school coach with 13 state championships in 22 seasons. He was inducted into the Oklahoma Sports Hall of Fame in 2018. He retired in April 2018 due to his battle with ALS.

A man built on faith and discipline, Trimble took over Jenks’ program in 1996. He then built the state’s greatest dynasty with the championships, a 242-41 record and 17 state championship game appearances.

A Cleveland native and Northeastern State graduate, Trimble started coaching in 1987 at Owasso High School. He was the linebacker’s coach. In 1990, he moved to Jenks, where he was promoted to offensive coordinator in 1993.

When he was promoted to head coach in 1996, the Trojans took off. They won the first of six straight championships that season.
