Tony Miller will become a hall of famer on Saturday.

That's when the former Spring Grove High School head coach will be inducted into the District 3 Wrestling Coaches Association Hall of Fame.

The ceremony will take place at 3 p.m. at Spring Grove High, which will play host to the District 3 Class 3-A Championships this weekend.

Miller resigned as the Rockets' head coach after the 2018 season for family reasons, although he has remained an assistant under current Spring Grove head coach Tyke Conover.

Miller led the Rockets to a serious run of local success over his two-plus decades as head coach.

Just 25 when he took over, Miller guided the Rockets to 14 York-Adams Division I titles and coached seven District 3 champions and 14 state medalists during his 21-year career. He also coached Brian Polashuk to the 125-pound PIAA Class 3-A state championship in 2006. 

Miller finished his Spring Grove tenure with 331 career dual-meet wins.

The others set for induction are Harrisburg's Mike Khan, Steelton's William "Sonny" Mills, Lititz's Ken Oswald, Northern Lebanon's Earl Stoddard and Garden Spot's Jeff Witwer.
