Magoffin County created football teams at the Elementary Level to introduce the sport to a younger group in order to have better trained players at the Middle and High School Level. This new addition to the program produced players that, in 2013, hosted the first Home post season game in Magoffin County Football history.
While playing home games on a new sports complex, the Magoffin County High School Football Team captured the District Championship for the first time in Magoffin County History after a win over Morgan County.
Oct. 11, 2014, Alice Lloyd College took a break from the usual Appalachia Day festivities to celebrate the induction of five former athletes into its Athletics Hall of Fame. The ceremony took place at the Grady Nutt Athletic Center on the College’s campus.
This year’s inductees were Steve Miller of Magoffin County; David Mollett of Mingo County, W.Va.; Tammy Oakes of Nashville, Tenn., John David Slone of Lexington and Robert Wright of Ashcamp.
A Magoffin County High School graduate, Miller attended Alice Lloyd College from 1987-1991 where he majored in education and served as a four-year member of the Eagles baseball team. He was the team’s closing pitcher his first two seasons, and was moved to starting pitcher his last two years. The Magoffin County product demonstrated his mastery of the mound as he earned Freshman Pitcher of the Year honors. As a senior, Miller was chosen all-conference, and he also earned the Coaches Award that year as well. He was such a good athlete that he was used as a pinch runner in the games he did not pitch, and was one of the team leaders in stolen bases. Furthermore, Miller was named Academic All-American both his junior and senior years. He is considered one of the top closers and pitchers to ever wear the Eagles uniform.
