Milan girls' soccer web site in jeopardy

Longtime Milan girls' soccer coach and science teacher Phil Zuber is leaving for a teaching post in Jenison, Michigan. As a teacher he'll be missed and as a coach he'll be missed; he was skilled at both.

Zuber built a terrific and thriving soccer program that had its best season ever this year, going 15-3, and cultivated talented players that should serve the team well in years to come. The future of Milan girls' soccer, I believe, is promising.

What I'm worried about, though, is the future of the team's Web site that Zuber created and maintained. It is the finest I've ever come across for a high school team. It has everything: schedules, rosters, stats, game summaries, league standings, pictures, team records, individual records, awards and scores from the past nine years!

It's fantastic. An invaluable resource. Coaches from across the state should take note. Zuber should open his own consulting business on how to design a high school sports Web site.

I'm sure whatever head coach Milan appoints as Zuber's successor will know plenty about soccer.

The question I have is: will they know HTML? I sure hope so.
