Millard, who was himself a former wrestler and two-time State University of New York runner-up, coached 16 New England Champions, 16 All-Americans, and 25 Class A champs. He retired in 2008. During Millard’s last year of coaching, NMH wrestlers triumphed at the New England Prep School Wrestling Championship, earning a margin of victory that was the largest in tournament history.
Millard has been described as “a giant in the sport,” “the dean of prep school wrestling,” and an “organizational mastermind.” He is one of just two wrestling coaches at any level in the country who can claim more than 700 victories. His overall record, which includes a series of coaching jobs in colleges and prep schools, stands at 718-204-3.
Millard is a member of the National Junior College Athletic Association Hall of Fame and the New York chapter of the National Wrestling Hall of Fame. He was twice named NCAA-NJCAA Wrestling Man-of-the-Year and also received the NEPSAC Distinguished Service Award, the prep school sports association’s highest honor. He is currently the chairman of the National Prep Wrestling Tournament Board.
