1981: Elton Toney “Coach” Burger

Toney Burger served as coach and athletic director in the AISD for 33 years. As a coach at Austin High School, he had impressive winning records in baseball and basketball. But winning was not everything to Coach Burger – he was interested in how many good citizens he turned out. In 1971, AISD named Toney Burger Activity Center in Oak Hill in his honor.
