Remembering Legendary FRHS Coach Jake Miller

On Sunday, May 10, Jake Miller, a beloved Far Rockaway High School coach, died.

Many will remember Miller as a Far Rockaway legend. Under the late Coach Kerchman, Miller was part of the football team that led the FRHS Seahorses to their first city title in 1953, and he stuck by the team for many years. Miller continued to be an important part of the school as an inspirational assistant coach, to a head coach, to a mentor and teacher.

Even after retiring, Coach Miller was known to return back to the Far Rockaway campus to catch football games and attend several Far Rockaway High School reunions, including in 2012 where he was honored for his role in the school’s history.

Miller died in his home in Florida on Sunday after a long battle with cancer.
