Milton E. McManaway was a college football player. He later coached high school football before becoming a successful attorney in Chicago. He also spent time as an insurance agent in Spartanburg, South Carolina.
Furman[edit | edit source]
He was a prominent quarterback for Billy Laval's Furman Purple Hurricane of Furman University in Greenville, South Carolina. He was also a star on defense and was noted for his ability to intercept and break up forward passes. He also never had a punt blocked. He was inducted into the Furman Athletic Hall of Fame in 1986.
1920[edit | edit source]
1921[edit | edit source]
Furman did not lose to an opponent from South Carolina for 3 years from 1919 to 1921, outscoring opponents 485 to 32. "In Captain McManaway, quarter-back, Furman had a man who could run, punt and pass from punt formation as good as the best." He was selected All-Southern by Ed Danforth of the Atlanta Georgian. McManaway was called by Scoop Latimer "one of two best quarterbacks in the South," presumably behind Centre's Bo McMillin.
High School Coaching[edit | edit source]
McManaway's first high school coaching position after Furman was at Batesburg-Leesville (SC) High School. In 1922 he led the Twins to a 6-3-1 record as they fell to Charleston (SC) High School in the Lower State Championship 40-0. Charleston would win the championship over Gaffney.
In 1923 the Twins again would go 6-3-1 as they fell to Columbia (SC) High School in the Lower State Championship 14-0. Columbia would lose to Thornwell in the championship game. Through 1925 there was only a single classification in South Carolina High School football with Batesburg-Leesville being a much smaller school than Charleston and Columbia, two of the largest cities in the state. Following the 1923-24 school year McManaway would leave Batesburg-Leesville with a record of 12-6-2.
