Heritage hires Prosser to take over football program
Heritage High School will step on the football field in 2013 under the direction of a new coach. Former Millbrook coach Reed Prosser has been hired to fill the vacancy left when Steve Williams resigned in November after four seasons at the helm.
Prosser guided Millbrook to the playoffs in five of the last six years, highlighted by a run to the Region II championship game in 2007. Millbrook won the 2010 Northwestern District title and produced a 40-36 record under Prosser.
“It has been an honor and a pleasure to coach at Millbrook High School,” Prosser stated. “It is truly a special place. We are proud of our accomplishments both on and off the field. We are particularly proud of how much the program and the school has grown in the last seven years.”
Prosser is a graduate of the College of William and Mary, where he was a three-year letterman and two-year starter on the Tribe football team. He was selected as the National Honor Society Teacher of the Year in 2010.
Heritage is aiming to rebound after a 2-8 season in 2012. The Pride earned their first-ever postseason berth the prior season in 2011. Heritage posted a 12-29 record in Williams’ four seasons.
“Heritage High School is a great opportunity both professionally and for my family,” Prosser said. “We are excited to develop a culture of success on and off the field.”
Prosser thanked Heritage Principal Jeff Adam and Athletic Director Ron Petrella for their support before adding, “Our goal is to become champions in the classroom and on the gridiron; yet more importantly, make our athletes better people and allow them avenues to achieve success throughout their lives.”
