  1. Please check your facts before posting Mills’ coaching record at Jefferson HS. Having played under Mills from 2004-06 (his first three years), we finished 8-4 in 2004 (losing to Martinsburg in the second round), 11-1 in 2005 (a perfect regular season record of 10-0, losing to University HS at JHS in the second round), and 6-4 in 2006 (no playoffs).
