Coach Jim Brownfield

Jim Brownfield Service Award

1974- 1990

I was fortunate to have attended Muir during one of the greatest football runs in the school’s history. This was made possible by a core of talented athletes, many of whom went on to top colleges and played in the National Football League.

I was an underclassman when guys like Chad Brown, Ricky Ervins and Marcus Robertson were winning back-to-back CIF championships in ’85 and ’86. But there was one person who stood head and shoulders above the rest and was the main reason for our success. He would never tell you that but it’s hard to hide the truth. If there were a Mount Rushmore on Muir’s campus, his face would be on it.

So large was Coach Jim Brownfield to the legacy of our school that the Alumni Association Board decided to pay him a perpetual honor, in the form of a service award, emblematic of his own practices of being of service not just to his players but the entire campus community.

His numbers as a coach were astounding: two CIF titles, a state title and the mythical national championship 14-0 season of 1986; 124 dual-meet victories as the girls’ track coach (a state record).

But it was the little things he did that were huge on campus that exemplify the human being he was. It is for these reasons that the Alumni Association has recognized and named in his honor the “Jim Brownfield Service Award.” The award will be given to non-alumni who have demonstrated outstanding community service that contributes to the betterment of the high school.

The inaugural award goes posthumously to the person for which it’s named.
