The coach on the High school baseball team is CRAP. He chooses kids who come from money and whose kid's parents are on the board vs the good kids who know how to play. He tells all the parents not to ask him any questions and not to question his authority. He would rather have kids who suck on the team playing first string vs the kids who have skills so the parents with money pay for new things. He needs to be BANNED. Heard he was trying to make all the freshamn good so by the time they become seniors they can be good enough to make him LOOK good so he can be the main coach at the combined school.

I know the coach personally. Several players have moved to other schools, but last year all 3 seniors went to college on scholarship. Small private school, but still, college paid for. And so what if some of the kids parents have money? He has the PLAYERS sell fundraisers so they can have superb equipment. Get your facts straight before you throw someone under the bus. Most coaches hate listening to parents, he just has the balls to tell them to shut up.

They went to mid-continent and schools that did not matter, I know the coach personally also, and 90% of the parents HATE him. You get your facts straight sweetie, he needs to quit or get fired for that matter.

I don't know anything about the baseball, basketball or football teams but I will say this...my daughter plays volleyball for Tilghman and Lone Oak is a force to be reckoned with!! Those girls are good and you can tell that they are VERY dedicated to the game!! The ONLY team that Tilghman loses to just about every they play is Lone Oak so I commend their coach for teaching them dedication and to have heart for their sport!!!

Some of your statements may be partially right, but I don't believe there is a baseball coach anywhere in Western Kentucky that works the kids harder. Yes, he could be a little more personable, but he is not there to be everyone's friend. It might get him a little further when decision time comes along to decide on a new coach, but he may live or die by his personality. Coach Miller is a great coach. He has done more with less the last few years and made Lone Oak a team to reckon with. Maybe in another year or two, he'll have that title.

As for him choosing kids with money isn't completely true... A friends son tried out first time made it then whenever they had their oh we have to hold another tryout he didn't make it. And that family has money. Coach even had a kid from another school. Not sure what everyone else thinks but this coach needs to pull his head from his butt!!!!

He also makes his players hate the sport of volleyball... On top of comparing them to past players.. This lowering their self esteem. They are beasts at the game I have no doubt in that. But he could work on his personal comments towards players..

Thanks I think...lol I just give credit where credit is due and those girls are ALWAYS in beast mode out there on that court!!! Tilghman's Varsity team doesn't lose to ANYONE BUT Lone Oak and that's saying something right there. That coach has definitely got a great team and they respect him and love the game which is how it's suppose to b!!

Well I don't know if they will be going back to the state tournament this year bc the pitcher who pitched in the state game last year is caught up in a girlfriend.

I agree, the football team is a beast but by watching they need to change some players up a little. They have the potential of being even better but I know of a few that I see that are very talented that play but not being used to their full potential and that's a loss for the team.

See I don't know that side of him...all I ever see is what he's like at the games. I'm a Tilghman person so I try to pay more attention to our girls but for some reason when Lone Oak plays u can't keep ur eyes off them. I know he got really pissed at me one tournament because he was hiding his hand behind his clipboard telling them where to serve the ball and I caught on and started yelling at our girls to close their gaps. I found it funny but don't think he did...lol

COACH MILLER SUCKS AND NEEDS TO BE THROWN OUT OF TOWN!!! Just bc he has a GRUDGE with my nephews cousin who went to the major league and he didn't go, made him feel the need to take it out on my nephew. Yes Coach miller you are envying and hating on his cousin and taking it out on him. Quit being a child and treat every kid the same, or quit.
