Gallery: Allan Trimble memorial service and a look back at his Jenks football career

The Mabee Center is as much a church as it is a basketball venue, and on Wednesday night it was the site of one of the more significant memorial services in Tulsa sports history.

To celebrate the life of Allan Trimble, who died Sunday after a 3½-year fight against ALS, more than 3,000 of his family members, friends and former players convened on the Oral Roberts University campus.

In 22 seasons at Jenks High School, Trimble compiled a record of 242-41 and 13 state championships. He died Sunday after battling ALS.

During a Jenks practice this week, the 53-year-old Trimble discussed his quest for what would be a fifth consecutive state title and his 14th overall, and he provided an update on his health and whether he can remain the Trojan coach for a 22nd season. He says the ALS has taken a toll on his stamina.
