• Coach Hal Mills

    Welcome to my web page.

    My name is Hal Mills and I teach Health and Physical Education here at DHS.  I am beginning my 2nd go around at Deshler and my 38th year of teaching altogether.  You might say I am "un-retiring" after spending the past 11 years in the private sector.  I am so glad to be back at my alma mater.  I was a 1980 graduate of DHS.  I was a 3-year letterman in football, wrestling and baseball.  I graduated from UNA with an HPERD degree in 1985 and have spent all but 3 years here in Tuscumbia.  I am married to Lori (Rickman) Mills and we have 3 grown children, Grace (Chad), Drew (Suzanne) and Rick (Felicia).  We have 7 grandchildren ranging from age 7yrs -3 months- all boys!  I have coached many different sports throughout my career and am currently a varsity football assistant and assistant golf coach.  I am so excited for this new opportunity to give back to the school system that poured so much into me.  IT"S GREAT TO BE A DESHLER TIGER!!
