David Milson was the long-time head coach of the Cedar Hill High School basketball team, who twice took his team to the Class 5A state title game. Coach Milson succumbed to lung cancer in 2011. While David’s achievements as a basketball coach were numerous, his true legacy will be the contributions he made as a teacher, friend and family man. David’s caring and positive attitude was felt by all he came in contact with. This event is named in his honor, that his memory may live.
