Reggie White Named Ravens High School Coach of the Week
Reggie White, head coach of the Milford Mill (Baltimore, Md.) varsity football team, has been named Ravens High School Coach of the Week. Presented by Toyota, this is the 16th year of the Ravens' award program.
Last Saturday (10/20), Milford Mill extended its record to 7-1 with a 30-27 win over visiting Catonsville. Trailing 24-6 at halftime, the Millers responded emphatically in the second half as QB Kyle McEachern posted two touchdowns, one passing and one rushing. McEachern's rushing touchdown came with 1:35 left in the game and was the deciding score for Milford Mill. Also, contributing to scores for the Millers was WR Raymond Adams, who returned a free kick 65 yards following a Milford Mill safety.
"We were getting pushed around in the first half," White said. "We talked with our kids at halftime about this, and they came out in the second half playing Milford football."
According to White, it's his team's maturity that has propelled the Millers' success. "Everybody matured this year, players and coaches. We have grown up together as a team. The players were tired of being mediocre and dedicated their offseason to changing that."
The Millers travel to Towson this Saturday (10/27), as they look to improve on their first winning season since 2008.
Each week during the season, the Ravens will honor a high school coach who has made a significant impact on his student-athletes. Each winner will be present at the Ravens-Broncos home game on Dec. 16 for the naming of the Ravens High School Coach of the Year.
Each weekly recipient receives:
- A $2,000 donation to the school's football program
- An award certificate signed by Ravens head coach John Harbaugh
- A specially-designed Coach of the Week hat
