HARRISONBURG — Another Broadway High School football coach is going to Millbrook.
Josh Haymore, a former James Madison assistant who spent two seasons as an assistant at BHS, has been named the new head football coach at Millbrook in Winchester.
“I think, in any profession, whether it’s high school football or anything you can think of — making crafts at a craft show — you want to get to the top of your profession,” said the 30-year-old Haymore, who also will teach math at Millbrook. “… I wanted to be the head coach. To me, that’s the pinnacle of the high school world of coaching.”
Haymore, a Roanoke native, replaces Reed Prosser, who left to become the coach at Heritage in Leesburg. Prosser, a former BHS coach, replaced Rod Bowers, who also went to MHS from Broadway. Bowers is now the coach at Stuarts Draft.
Haymore was a JMU assistant from 2005-10.
While at Broadway, Haymore — who coached offensive line and defensive ends, and was the offensive coordinator in 2012 — helped the Gobblers to a Division 4 state-tournament semifinal appearance. At JMU, he helped recruit, notably, offensive lineman Earl Watford to JMU. Watford likely is a fourth- to seventh-round pick in April’s NFL draft.
Haymore, a former JMU long snapper, was a senior when the Dukes won the Division I-AA national championship in 2004.
