A 7-1 record for Milford Mill Academy football has earned Reggie White Coach of the Week status by the Ravens.
The head coach led his team Saturday to a 30-27 win over visiting Catonsville, even though the Millers trailed 24-6 at halftime.
The team's performance—the first winning season since 2008—and White's impact on the team, has earned him the Ravens High School Coach of the Week honor.
Here are some highlights of the game, according to a news release from the Ravens.
"The Millers responded emphatically in the second half as QB Kyle McEachern posted two touchdowns, one passing and one rushing," it states.
"McEachern’s rushing touchdown came with 1:35 left in the game and was the deciding score for Milford Mill."
WR Raymond Adams returned a free kick 65 yards following a Milford Mill safety, the release states.
White credited his team for the success.
“Everybody matured this year, players and coaches," he said in a statement. "We have grown up together as a team. The players were tired of being mediocre and dedicated their offseason to changing that.”
This is the 16th year for the Ravens’ weekly award program, held during the season. It's presented by Toyota.
Each coach of the year winner attends the Ravens-Broncos home game Dec. 16 for the naming of the Ravens High School Coach of the Year.
They get a $2,000 donation to the school’s football program, an award certificate signed by Ravens head coach John Harbaugh, and a coach-of-the-week hat.
On Saturday, the Millers travel to Towson.
