Brad Gore has been around the game of baseball as a coach for nearly three decades.

Now in his eighth year as head coach at Enid High School, Gore has also been around a lot of success.

He led Dover to back-to-back Class B state championships in 2001 and 2002 and coached the Longhorns’ program for 10 years. Gore took Dover to 10 state tournaments, five times in the fall and another five times in the spring.

He guided Chickasha to three Class 5A State Tournament championship game appearances and coached the Fightin’ Chicks for 11 years before his arrival at Enid in 2015-16. Chickasha advanced to seven state tournaments during his tenure.

Long before coaching, Gore was a standout player at Taloga High School and went on to star as a pitcher at Oklahoma State. He was recently inducted as the newest member of the Oklahoma State Baseball Cowboy Hall of Fame in January.

“I’m very honored and humbled to be a part of a great group of players that are already in the hall of fame,” Gore said.

Drafted by both the Baltimore Orioles and St. Louis Cardinals, Gore holds several OSU and Big Eight records. He is the Cowboys’ and Big Eight Conference’s career leader in innings pitched (351.1). He has an OSU record 57 starts on the mound, is second in program history with four shutouts, third in strikeouts (305) and fourth in wins (30). Gore played on OSU’s 1990 and 1993 College World Series teams.

Over his career as a Cowboy, Gore posted a 30-11 record in 64 appearances and threw eight complete games with an earned run average of 4.48.

Gore, who said his father, also a baseball head coach, is his mentor, has won 887 games over 28 years. He has won 141 games at Enid.

“I enjoy watching guys reach their potential and become successful people when they leave our program,” Gore said. “I want them to have a strong work ethic and confidence that they can succeed at whatever they put their minds to.”

Gore also teaches World History at Enid. He led the Plainsmen to a 25-10 record and to an appearance in the Class 6A State Tournament quarterfinals in 2022, and has 21 regional titles and 14 district championships during his high school coaching career.
