Legend Jack Pratt dies at 84

Posted: Updated:
SAGINAW, MI (WNEM) -

Genesee County and the whole Michigan high school sports community is morning the loss of legendary head high school coach Jack Pratt.

Pratt worked at four different schools in Genesee County and racked up nearly 700 combined wins between his football and basketball teams.  Pratt winning a football state title in 2005 at Flint Powers.

I had the privilege to cover Pratt and his teams over the years.  The man had a command and presence about him that is not often seen in any walk of life.

Pratt was 84.
