The first coach to win four straight league titles since Fairmont State's Joe Retton during the mid-1970s, Crutchfield has averaged more than 30 victories a season in that stretch while leading the Hilltoppers to an 85-3 (.966) record in league play.

Fairmont State men's basketball coach Joe Retton, shown here during a game in the late 1970s, coached the Falcons for 19 seasons and compiled a career winning percantage of .836.TIMES?WEST?VIRGINIAN?PHOTO
Coaching legend August 29, 2010 Retton strove for perfection - and came close to getting it But perhaps more than anything, according to several who played for Retton, it was his ability to build a team, little by little, brick by brick, and make it all mold together. After a wildly successful run at Barrackville High School that included a 27-0 season and a Class A state championship, Retton came to Fairmont State and began a remarkable run. In 19 seasons with the Falcons, he won 478 games, lost just 95 and amassed a seen-to-believed .836 winning percentage. According to Furgason, who himself became a winning coach at Rivesville High School in the 1970s, success playing for Retton was based on a few key principles. Retton also believed that every player who put on the maroon and white knew what his range was. That is, which kind of shot suited his playing style and which didn't. Not coach Retton. On the other end of the floor, Retton used a man-to-man/zone defense hybrid to drive opponents crazy. Long after the coaching was done and the basketballs were put away for good, Retton and his players have remained close. For some, he's been like a father figure. "That's just the way he is,"?Furgason said of Retton.
