Harry Brosius earned his fame in Chautauqua County with outstanding success at Sherman Central School.

Brosius, after playing four years of football and baseball at Cortland State, came to Sherman in 1937 and from that year to 1969 served as the athletic director. He coached all sports for the Wildcats and won Section 6 titles in basketball, volleyball, baseball and bowling. However, it was in football that he was most famous.

Brosius compiled a superb 107-67-5 record and was the first football coach in Chautauqua County history to reach the 100-win plateau. He began the six-man game at Sherman in 1940 and that continued through 1959, then, he was in charge of the 11-man program from 1960-68.


The additional financial assistance of the community is critical to the success of the Chautauqua Sports Hall of Fame. We gratefully acknowledge these individuals and organizations for their generous support.
