Allan Sepkowitz accepted a position as a biology teacher and assistant football coach in 1965 at Andress High School in El Paso, Texas. In 1976, he became head coach. Now, forty-seven years later, he is calling it a career with the Eagles.
Coach Sep told NewsChannel 9 Saturday that he will retire as head football coach at Andress after spending nearly five decades walking the sidelines for the Eagles. In his tenure, Sepkowitz amassed 252 wins making him the winningest coach in El Paso high school football history as well as ranking him in the top 20 in Texas high school football coaches.
The opening has already been posted on the EPISD website and Coach Sep will stay with the team until the end of the school year in June.
