Just because they don't play doesn't mean they are trying to hurt someone. What a childish thing to say. They may be wanting to concentrate on one sport and then academics. perhaps they decided they just didn't want to play football. Is every young man at Brookland playing? Are the ones who are not trying to hurt the team?
Only four teams from the conf go to the playoffs this year. Count on not being there this year.

The intent may not be to hurt the program but the fact is it will! When u take away the starting quarterback,wide receiver,tight end, and running back it will hurt the program! These boys have played football since the beginning and it may not be so bad to loose one but all four at the same time hurts! The number from each conference is five (check it out)with these boys still there it is very possible to be one of those five! We would be
capable of beating Truman,Westside, Cave City and quite possible sneak up on a few other teams in the conference!! Nothing wrong with just playing one sport and focusing on academics but the impact is sill damaging! And yes you will be letting down your team mates!

Look no further than the leader of the squad and you will find your problem. The program is in trouble and changes need to be made.

Leader of the squad? As in the coach? Are you not a loyal follower of Mills?

Letting down your team mates is being on the team and not giving it your all. NOT deciding to play and bot putting yourself on the team is NOT letting them down. Maybe it is more about helping another TEAM.

These boys have a right to decide what they want to do. If their heart is not in football, then it just isn't. My son is still playing football, but he holds no ill will toward the players who are opting not to play. If they enjoy basketball more, that is their choice. Either way, I think the football players will support the basketball team and vice versa. Parents should do the same. I hear all this stuff about winning, but in the end, the memories the boys will have will be the time they spent together practicing, traveling to and from the games, in the locker rooms, at school. Winning is great, but learning values and responsibility from the sports is more important. I know some parents will disagree with me, but in a few years, no one will remember certain games or school records, but they will remember the experience of the time spent with their team.

Let the little incident from the coach in Collierville be a final warning for you. I am sick and tired of you all using your filthy language in front of our minor children.
You do not need to have a potty mouth to earn their respect - those boys look up to you and you can show them that they can be a man and be an athlete without using vulgar vocabulary -
I cringe every time our boy comes home and shares what you have said - shame on you - and shame on Brookland Schools if they allow it to continue. Please do not be the next "youtube" sensation like the other coach- because that will be coming soon.
Hey idiot why don't you come to me and run your mouth? My son plays for Coach Mills and he is the best coach I have ever come across. I do not believe anything you have written. You are not only and idiot but a liar. You just come to Brookland and start running your mouth and see just how damn fast I can shut it for you. I bet you are the child of a bother sister relationship. So go back to your trailerhood and shut the f&**( up.

Is this an example of a Mills supporter? It's obvious he doesn't care what language his son hears at practice, cause he hears it at home. As far as Mills being the bst coach this cretin ever came across, he must be the first coach he ever came across. This guy was a joke at Rivercrest, some players liked him but they all laughed at the fact he knew nothing about football. Brookland was desperate for a coach and Mills was desperate to leave Rivercrest because his wife moved to nettleton. Rivercrest was coming off to back to back trips to the rock so the coach must be good, right? Of course, this was the same guy who couldn't pass his teaching exams and someone had to be brought in to teach his classes. Unless Brookland has outstanding assit. coaches and extremely talented kids, this team will never have a winning season with Mills as coach.

If I do I'm going over the board on bullying , cussing, and it all!! I wont even bother too deal with that crap!! I did notice people said you could email their teachers and crap but its like two weeks or more til school starts and I have yet too receieve an answer too my question back when the other town gives you a full folder too fill out. What's their disapline policy? I noticed they didn't give me any papers too sign on pick up or paddeling. I do know that I do not want him paddled there and I will personally get a lawyer and file a lawsuit myself if something like this is too happen. I can't stand a team that's all about winning yes its good too win but too pressure the kids too hard!! It's fun and a game!! It's not about the parents or coaches!! We all had our chances back when we went too school!! What happen too caring and teaching our kids values!!?

It is a free country. Most parents that are so adamant that their kids can't be paddled or they will file a lawsuit make me ill. Those are usually the worst behaved children, and the school doesn't need families like yours. It sounds to me like you have issues with many school as you seem to be getting information from alot of them.

Ok seriously let's think about this....First...I'm going to get on topix which is basically a big gossip session and I'm going to judge a potential school for my child based on a gossip site. Probably not the best idea. Second...Do not judge someone based on what an online gossip site has to say about them. My son has played football for Coach Mills since the program began. I personally have been on the field or around at practices and seen the way he Coaches. He is a fantastic man, Coach, and leader who works hard to promote a great football program, inspire these young men to strive for more and be leaders, and works tirelessly to help each boy apply for scholarships to colleges. However, Coach does insist that these boys work hard and are not just GIVEN things on a silver platter. Guess why? Because that's what the real world is like. Third...our school is a great school who has fantastic people working in it. Have you thought maybe this schools system works a little differently. We get all those things your talking about when the new school year begins but if that isn't good enough for you you can find a copy of the student handbook online by just googling it.
This is just ridiculous people.

I just moved here and have been asking around about what schools are best and happens too put brookland on Topix and seen this and it disgust me too see all the things said. I'm not judging the school off this site but I know a lot of the people on here are kids that go there , parents , teachers,and etc!! My child is a young child not a teenager and I have every right too be worried !! I know topix is a way too get the dirt actually whether its true or not idk about the coach!! Do I cuss around my child ? No!! But as I get on here and say something and somebody calls my child the most worst behaved child!! This literally makes me sick a parent would even say that!! If you don't worry about your child then there must be something.wrong with you!! I just want what's best for my child!! I worry about bullying , teachers, and punishment that's my preferance I don't think a child.should be hit with a paddle ( board)!! Some.parents work and don't have time.too mess with it and are just like do whatever but not this mom!! Thanks for the information on your school and for letting me know that my child isn't needed there!! That's soo mature but I'm glad that's how parents and teachers are there :/!!

Your reference to your child attending head start implies that you might not be a working mom. I am and always have been. My children are in high school with very good behavior and grades. I have been to every parent teacher conference, field trip, and ballgame. Perhaps if you were such a caring mom, you wouldn't have deposited your child at a head start (free program I believe) while you sit home. By the way, I was not fortunate enough to dump my children into a free program to allow me free time. I paid for daycare until my children were school age, then I paid for after school care until I got off work. Furthermore, my children have never had to be spanked although I have signed the permission form to allow it every year. If you are so concerned about how terrible and abusive the faculty is, I suggest homeschooling. These teachers spend five days a week with these kids. You should trust them to make judgments on discipline. I do strongly recommend homeschooling for you because apparently no school can live up to what you expect.

Your posts seem to indicate that you do not work (your reference to "some parents work" and your child going to head start). So does this mean you take care of your child in every way except monetarily (food, shelter, medical). Are you willing to let the government help take care of your child when it come to that? I do, and always have worked. I paid for daycare until my children were school age then I paid for after school care until I got off work. I still managed to attend all parent teacher conference, field trips, ballgames, and every other activity my children had. I have met every teacher they have ever had as well as every secretary and principal. My children are in high school, and even though I have always signed the permission slip for paddling, it has never happened. They have good grades and good behavior. When they decide they want to show a little bad judgment on behavior, they know they can be disciplined. They are to respect their teachers. I have never dumped my children anywhere. Perhaps instead of dumping your child off on the doorstep of headstart, you should have kept the kid home with you. Have you considered homeschooling? Sounds like you have all the answers. I truly feel sorry for any teacher that your child has, not because of your child (as he probably is a good kid), but because the teacher has to deal with you.

If you are new to the community and do not know the teachers/coaches/faculty, why are you judging them? Of course that will make parents angry. Furthermore, if you child just finished head start, why are you even reading and commenting about the football coach since that doesn't begin until seventh grade. You just want to badmouth something and cause trouble.

COACH MILLS IS A GOOD GUY. HE TEACHES THE KIDS MUCH MORE THAN FOOTBALL. I HAVE NEVER HEARD ONE OF MY SON'S FRIENDS SAY ANYTHING NEGATIVE ABOUT HIM AND THEY HAVE HAD HIM AS COACH FOR FOUR YEARS.

Again, let me recommend that you homeschool.
