As the softball season approaches, RHS junior varsity (JV) softball welcomes a new coach, Jason Milot. JV had a pretty steady season last year with a record of 6-8, and with the new season coming up Milot wants to help the players as much as he can.

“My goal is to have a good season, but ultimately improve and develop each player’s technical skills also understanding and appreciation of how to be a team player,” coach Milot said.  

Milot graduated from RHS in 1992 and played many sports including travel hockey, basketball, and baseball. Afterwards, he attended Macomb Community College for accounting, but chose the electrical field. He is a Journeyman electrician and Nicet certified. Milot has coached softball for the past 12 years. He started out at Roseville Junior Sports, then went onto travel softball and now coaches Michigan Riptide 16U.

”I like to see everyone having fun and cheering on their team, if you keep it fun the more interested they are to learn and grow to be better players,” coach Milot said.

In his free time he likes to work out and spend time with his family. Milot has a daughter that attends RHS, sophomore Madison Milot. She played varsity softball as a freshman and also plays travel softball for Michigan Riptide.

“I don’t see him as my dad when I’m playing or practicing. I see him as my coach,” Milot said.
