Southern visits South Carolina

Southern Columbia defensive coordinator Andy Mills, center, goes through a drill with his defensive linemen last season in preparation for the Tigers opening game against Hammond in South Carolina. The Tigers beat Hammond, who won its 17th state championship last season, 36-0.

FRANKLIN TOWNSHIP — There’s relatively no debate that Jim Roth will go down as the most accomplished coach in Pennsylvania high school football history when it is all said and done.

The one man that has been with him since day one is his defensive coordinator, Andy Mills. Roth is entering his 37th season, which includes 18 state championship appearances, and all of them have included Mills as his right-hand man.
