Head coaching record

In 1944, Winslow played for the Hollywood Rangers of the short-lived American Football League, an eight-team organization based on the Pacific Coast. Head coach Bill Sargent moved him from end to quarterback, which the United Press partly credited for the team's success.[2] The Rangers finished in first place with a perfect 11–0 record in the league's only season.[3]

His son, Troy Winslow, played as a quarterback at USC in the 1960s.[4]
