Charles Granby, top, the boys basketball coach at Andrew Jackson/Campus Magnet School since 1970, retired on Feb. 13 following his 722nd career victory, an 87-48 win over Thomas Edison Technical High School.

The wins are the most in PSAL history.

Granby started as a physical education teacher at the school in 1969 and became the coach the following season.

He molded generations of young players, even after his retirement from teaching in 1995, lending a steady hand during the transition as his Andrew Jackson Bulldogs became the Campus Magnet Bulldogs.

Commemorative T-shirts, the above collage and a special tribute from the school’s cheerleading squad marked the night.
