Head coach Sharman White has been on the sideline throughout the championship run, compiling a 170-27 record over the past six seasons. White is 315-82 through the first 12 years of his coaching career and led Miller Grove to national Top 25 finishes in 2011 (No. 6) and 2013 (No. 19).
Friday's victory may have been the sweetest yet as the Wolverines dedicated the 2013-14 campaign to Terrell Coleman, a potential freshman phenom for the program who collapsed and died in late October.Deep South DynastyMiller Grove's last six seasonsYear – Record
