Mark Trout is the new athletic director at Milford High School. He replaces Hank Ohnmeis who resigned recently.

Trout is an excellent fit for the success of the Eagle athletic department since he has years of experience and familiarity with the program. He has taught at the high school for 12 years, five of those he served as the chairman of the mathematics department. He was chosen as the Milford High School Teacher of the Year in 2000.
