Pete Stout, who guided Williams High School to two state championships as a football coach, has died.

Stout coached the Bulldogs to Class 3-A state titles in 1980 and 1981. During his time, the Bulldogs racked up 43 consecutive victories, which at the time established a state record.

Stout left Williams to return to his college alma mater at Catawba, where he coached for four seasons.

Stout’s record as a high school coach was 234-63-14. He also had a runner-up finish with the Bulldogs.

His other coaching stops in 28 seasons on the prep level included time at Altamahaw, Western Alamance, Salisbury Boyden and Morganton Freedom.

Stout, who attended Haw River High School, is a member of the Catawba College Sports Hall of Fame.
