Milford Mill’s Reggie White was named the Ravens’ High School Coach of the Week Wednesday after leading the No. 14 Millers to a comeback 30-27 win over Baltimore County rival Catonsville Saturday.
In his 10thseason with the Millers, White has guided his alma mater to a 7-1 record and the top spot in the Class 3A North regional standings with just two regular-season games remaining.
In the victory over Catonsville, the Millers rebounded from a 24-6 halftime deficit to win on quarterback Kyle McEachern’s 1-yard run with 1:35 left in the game. McEachern, who ran for 96 yards on 13 carries and completed 11 of 15 passes for 136 yards, scored three touchdowns.
The Millers, who were 5-5 last fall, will post their first winning season in four years and, with games remaining against 1-7 teams Towson and Eastern Tech, they appear headed for the playoffs for the first time since they finished 9-3 and reached the regional final in 2008.
“Everybody matured this year, players and coaches,” White said in a news release. “We have grown up together as a team. The players were tired of being mediocre and dedicated their offseason to changing that.”
White, who played in the 1994 Super Bowl with the San Diego Chargers, is the sixth Ravens’ Coach of the Week this season, joining Francis Scott Key’s Dave Smith, C. Milton Wright’s Marc Alegi, Old Mill’s Chad McCormick, Atholton’s Kyle Schmitt and Mount Hebron’s Phil Zacharias.
This is the 16th year for the Ravens’ Coach of the Week award. Each week a different high school coach will be honored with a $2,000 donation to his school’s football program, a certificate and a Coach of the Week hat. Each weekly winner also will be featured in a ComcastSportNet segment.
All of the winners will be invited to the Ravens' Dec. 16 home game against the Denver Broncos, where the Ravens' High School Coach of the Year will be named.
