Neosho Wildcats Welcome Coach Leon Miller
Neosho, MO - Neosho School District is happy to welcome coach Leon Miller as Neosho High School's head football coach and strength and conditioning teacher. Miller will begin teaching Neosho students in the fall and will kick off his coaching duties this summer.
"We are very excited to have Coach Miller join the Wildcat Family. He brings a tremendous amount of experience and success to our football program. I know he'll be a great addition to our team, classrooms, and community," said athletic director Cori Reid.
Miller boasts 28 years of head coaching experience and has led his teams into the playoffs for 23 of those seasons, earning two state runner-up finishes and one state title.
He earned his bachelor's and master's degrees in physical education and played football at Pittsburg State University. He served as head coach at Parsons high school and Frontenac high school, and most recently as head coach at Girard High School in Girard, KS for nearly 10 years.
"We will work hard and play hard in order to represent NHS and the community proudly on and off the field," said Miller when commenting on his new role.
When meeting the potential team for the first time, Coach Leon explained, "I want you to be great football players, I want this team to be great, but I also want you to be great people. For us to be successful, everyone, and I mean everyone, has to care about each other. And how we go about those things is going to determine how we are on the field."
