James D. "Jim" Acree (April 17, 1928 April 7, 1995) was a famed high school football coach. He is particularly known for his years at Corsicana High School in Corsicana, Texas, where he won a 3-A state championship in 1963, and at Robert E. Lee High School in Midland, Texas, where he coached from 1970 to 1977. He also had a short stint as assistant coach at Texas Tech University under head coach J. T. King. Acree played collegiate football at the University of Oklahoma until 1953. He played center under coach Bud Wilkinson. He then became head coach at Bonham High School in Bonham, Texas. At Midland Lee High, Acree coached a couple of future National Football League players, among them Pro Bowler Junior Miller, and Quarterback Brad Wright (Miami Dolphins, Dallas Cowboys, Detroit Lions), and at Corsicana some successful coaches, including Jerry Moore and Tom Wilson.
