Class of 1978
Basketball
Head Softball Coach (1990)

By the time he received his West Point degree, Gary Winton had virtually rewritten the Army men's basketball record book, establishing a dozen records on game, season and career levels.

Winton led Army in both scoring and rebounding during each of his four varsity campaigns, and graduated as the program's career leader in points (2,296) and rebounds (1,168). He shattered the existing scoring mark by nearly 1,000 points (956), while his rebounding standard still stands 27 years after his departure.

He earned honorable mention All-America citations in both 1977 and 1978. Winton forged 14 30-point scoring performances in his career, along with 17 contests in which he garnered 15 or more rebounds. He later returned to the Academy to serve a one-year stint as head softball coach, crafting a 29-10 record in 1990.
