A retired teacher, Milt Place was a ten-time Medina County Gazette coach of the year and a member of three halls of fame including the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference, Ohio Association of Track & Cross Country Coaches, and Adams State University. He was inducted into the Medina City Schools Hall of Fame in 2017. Place received the very special, “Sportsmanship, Ethics, and Integrity Award'' from the OHSAA.

But while his accolades are impressive, it is said it was his ability to genuinely care about every kid that will be his lasting legacy.

"Nobody cares how much you know, until they know how much you care, that's why nobody cared as much as he did, He was the person you could pull aside, like 'Hey I need someone to talk to about this because things are not well at home, or maybe I'm not feeling too well, or schools not going too well,' he would take you aside or take you to the bleachers behind us and say 'Hey, let’s figure this out,' A lot of the alumni went out for runs and dedicated those miles to him and I think all of us had to stop because we had to tear up."
- Scott Van Fleet (women's cross country coach[Medina High School])


Coach Milt will be deeply missed by many.
