Good Counsel head football coach Bob Milloy has been enshrined in the Washington DC Sports Hall of Fame.
Milloy was part of the 2016 induction class that also included Christine Brennan, Marco Etcheverry, Patrick Ewing, Frank Herzog, Earl Lloyd, Dexter Manley, Missy Meharg and Harold Solomon along with brothers Hymie and Phil Perlo.
The induction ceremony was held at Nationals Park recently prior to a game between the Washington Nationals and the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Iconic sports figures such as Sammy Baugh, James Brown, Dominique Dawes, Josh Gibson, Walter Johnson, Sonny Jurgensen, Joe Gibbs and Morgan Wootten have also been enshrined in the Washington DC Sports Hall of Fame so Milloy is certainly in good company.
“I still can’t believe I’m here,” said Milloy. “I’d like to thank the committee for including me. It’s quite an honor.”
Milloy has enjoyed a distinguished career coaching high school football in Montgomery County including stints at Whitman, Springbrook and Sherwood before landing at Good Counsel in 2001.
Milloy first made his mark in the county at Springbrook when he guided the Blue Devils to six Maryland state championships in 18 seasons on the gridiron.
During his tenure at the Silver Spring public school, Milloy compiled a 168-35 record and guided the Blue Devils to appearances in eight state title games.
He left Valley Brook Drive in 1992 for the confines of Sherwood High in Sandy Spring where he replaced Bob Stroup who stepped down after nearly two decades at the helm.
In nine seasons at Sherwood, Milloy compiled a 77-22 record including back-to-back state championships in 1995 and 1996. He also led the Warriors to a state final appearance in 2000.
The following year, Milloy was hired at Good Counsel where he became the architect of not only one of the top high school football programs in Maryland but in the nation as well.
Over the years, Milloy gradually built the Falcons into a Washington Catholic Athletic Conference contender.
From 2009-2012, Milloy guided Good Counsel to four consecutive WCAC championships and is recognized as the state’s all-time winningest football coach at the high school level.
At Good Counsel, Milloy has coached numerous student-athletes who have gone on to play Division I college football and the Hall of Fame coach also boasts a handful of former players who are currently competing at the highest level – in the National Football League.
Good Counsel graduates Jelani Jenkins (Miami Dolphins), Stefon Diggs (Minnesota Vikings), Louis Young (Carolina Panthers), Blake Countess (Philadelphia Eagles) and Kendall Fuller (Washington Redskins) are currently on NFL rosters for the 2016 season.
