Flint Loses a Coaching Jewel (Flint Journal)

September 25, 2012

The Flint sports community lost a longtime contributor Monday, and one that no doubt left heavy hearts all over Michigan. Longtime Flint Powers Catholic coach Jack Pratt died at the age of 84.

His career covered roughly a half-century and included more than 300 football wins and nearly 400 on the basketball court. He coached well into the last decade and into his late 70s. Ross Maghielse memorializes him well.
