The Willis ISD School Board unanimously selects former spring head coach Trent Miller to lead the Wildkats football community

WILLIS, Texas (KTRK) — Willis High School is one of the smallest schools ranked in the state’s 6A high school football rankings, but that isn’t expected to last.

Willis ISD Superintendent Dr. Tim Harkrider says they expect the population to double in eight years. On Thursday, the school board unanimously selected former spring head coach Trent Miller to lead the Wildkats community in this growth both on and off the field.

Miller said: “Our goal is to help these young men and women become the best versions of themselves. We want our young men to be better husbands, fathers, executives, bosses one day, and football n is only a small part of their journey.”

“It’s more than a football player or a basketball player. You’re a person. You have a family. We’re going to teach you how to be great along the way.” said Harkrider.

“Trent helps these kids feel like they can be someone outside of their sport.” Jason Glenn, Willis Executive Director of Sports and Arts.

Miller spent nine years at Spring ISD, the last five as head football coach. As a head coach, he was 41-14. His teams have reached the playoffs every year and have gone to the third round the last two years.
