Four Questions with Gainesville coach Bruce Miller
Bruce Miller, Gainesville
1. What is the most memorable game you’ve been a part of as a player or coach? “With over 40 years in coaching, I have had several – our state championship win vs. Ware County in 2012; our win vs. Sandy Creek in the quarterfinals in 2011; our Buford win in 2012. These and some of our games with North Hall and Flowery Branch come to mind when I hear the question.”
2. Which high school coach would you want your son to play for, and why? “I have been around many great ones. I have always been impressed with Jimmy Dorsey, Jeff Herron, Cecil Flowe and Mike Earwood. They always had the players’ best interest at heart, and their teams always played so hard and also their teams were so well-prepared.”
3. What is your pet peeve as a coach or favorite saying/motto? “One of my longtime pet peeves is when officials let the other (sideline they’re working) team call a penalty or penalties! And my favorite saying is the 5 P’s – ‘Prior Planning Prevents Poor Performance!’”
4. Which GHSA policy or high school football rule would you most like to see changed? “I have seen many changes over my career. I like the way the GHSA is making the rules to make the game safer for our players. It sometimes changes the way you coach, but the game is a great game and I want our players to remember playing it because it teaches so many of life’s lessons.”
