Remembered by sportswriter Red Smith as “one of the truly original minds in football,” Pop Warner was one of the most influential coaches in the history of American college football. Coaching at such prominent universities as Georgia, Cornell, Carlisle, Pittsburgh, Stanford, and Temple, he sported an impressive 319-106-32 record during his 43-year coaching career.
 
Known simply as Pop, Warner was born Glenn Scobey Warner in Springville, NY. As captain of the 1894 football team at Cornell University, he acquired the nickname “Pop” because he was older than the average student. After briefly practicing law, he began his coaching career at the University of Georgia in 1895.
 
During the 43 years he spent coaching, football changed enormously, eventually becoming the game we know today. An innovative coach, Warner did much to improve the game. He originated the single- and double-wing offense formations, and is credited with developing the three-point stance, the screen pass, the spiral punt, the unbalanced line, the shifting defense, and the rolling body block. He was also the first coach to number players’ jerseys, and to use thigh and shoulder pads. 
 
Pop Warner died in 1954, but his memory lives on today through the youth football program that carries his name.
The Legendary Football Coaches se-tenant stamps honoring Bear Bryant, George Halas, Vince Lombardi, and Pop Warner, were dedicated July 25, 1997, at the Pro Football Hall of Fame. On various dates in August, separate stamps for each coach, with one design per pane, were issued. These stamps can be distinguished by the red bar over the coach's name.
