Riner, Virginia. —Auburn head coach Terry Millirons remembers two years ago he took his team up those steps in the lobby of the Siegel Center and told his team they wouldn’t be playing in the Class 1 State Championship due to Covid 19. –
“There has never been a worse loss than this moment,” Millirons says.
But two years later, they have another opportunity at the class one title.
“It’s definitely more motivating for me and my dad than the other guys, they weren’t there to experience it like us,” said star guard Ethan Millirons.
Head coach Terry Millirons says the chemistry on this team is unmatched.
“We all get along, no one takes themselves too seriously, they have fun together and like I said, I think it’s created a culture where they want to work hard, they want to improve, and they all beat and play for each other,” Millirons says.
But Auburn’s poise to be able to shoot from the arc and take it inside – is sure to be the catalyst for Saturday’s game against Washington and Lee.
“They’re going to be very aggressive and quick, picking up the pace, trying to pick up the pace. I think we have the size advantage on the inside, and we have the length advantage, so hopefully we can take advantage of that,” Ethan said.
Senior Ethan Millirons could close the chapter of his high school career with more accolades than most if the season ended today (Auburn’s all-time leading scorer). But he has another chance to play and hopefully lift a trophy at the end.
AND WHAT DO YOU THINK?
I think it would be great, all the work I put into this program would pay off,” says Ethan.
21-8 Auburn pitches against 15-7 Washington & Lee at 6:30 p.m. Richmond.
