The following student-athletes exemplified excellence both in the classroom and in their respective sport(s) throughout their stay at Milford.

The Archie Griffin Sportsmanship Award is sponsored by the Ohio High School Athletic Association to promote sportsmanship, ethics and integrity. Our two student-athlete winners this year have certainly displayed the characteristics for which this award was designed.

MHS Most Outstanding Senior Athletes

Every year, one boy and one girl are voted as “Most Outstanding Senior Athlete” by the head coaches of every sport. Number of varsity letters, number of different varsity sports played, accomplishments in their varsity sports and personal character are the focal points of the selection process.

  • Wes Reid – earned seven varsity letters (four for baseball and three for basketball). Wes was a two-time first team all-conference selection on the baseball diamond and won four league titles during his career. He was a member of one overall and two co-ECC title teams in baseball and one co-crown squad on the hardwood. Wes was a part of a basketball team that advanced to the OHSAA District Finals and a regional runner-up squad on the diamond.
  • Tori Gilman – earned six varsity letters (three each in soccer and basketball). She has also earned five individual ECC All-Conference honors during her career, including a first team mention during her senior basketball season, as well as being tabbed all-district second team.
