    "A famous New Martinsville coach was making headlines and receiving numerous congratulatory greetings.  Mont M. (Tubby) McIntire, famous for his coaching successes at West Virginia University and Magnolia High School, had been appointed a member of the State Racing Commission by Governor
Clarence Meadows.
    McIntire's appointment was widely acclaimed as a wise choice because of his long interest in racing and breeding.  Locally, he had been aiding A.C. Roettels in establishing Paducah Farms at Steelton, the first race horse breeding farm ever located in northern West Virginia.
    McIntire was coach at West Virginia in the days when the Mountaineers were the scourge of Eastern gridirons and "Rat" Rogers became the University's first All American choice.
    Locallly the name "Tubby" brought to mind the famous Eagles team which he led into a state championship.
    As a teacher, McIntire's development of good kickers stood out.  He "made" Eddy Bartug, one of the finest kickers ever to boot a pigskin for West Virginia."
