Coach Forward is an interview-style podcast hosted by Jason Mejeur (Coach J), accomplished Coach, Mentor, and Founder/CEO at MaxOne. To see the MaxOne platform, schedule some time here.
Today, I'm excited to be joined by Coach Ben Reaves. Coach Reaves is the newly hired head coach at Milton HS (GA), where he served as offensive coordinator for the past five seasons. Milton is a national powerhouse in high school football that is regularly competing for state championships and a top 100 national ranking.
Prior to Milton, Coach Reaves served at Collins Hill HS (GA) and Bay Shore HS (FL) as well. His passion for building a team, putting players first, and leading with an approach of love and fun make him stand out as one of the nation's best coaches.
