South Medford High School athlete Josh Milhollin will be the guest Friday when the Mail Tribune's live, unscripted and interactive sports chat returns for a third week.

Milhollin, a senior, is a standout for the Medford high school in track and football. The quarterback, who endured a circuitous recruiting experience, signed a letter of intent with Portland State University.

Milhollin will speak with Mail Tribune sports reporter Dan Jones at noon. Log on to www.mailtribune.com/mtsportschat to watch or participate. We'll take questions and comments live.

Milhollin owns the top marks in the Rogue Valley in the javelin (177-9), high jump (6-5), long jump (21-6 1/2) and triple jump (44-11 3/4). His effort in the high jump is second best among Class 6A competitors.

The Southwest Conference district meet begins today and continues Saturday in Roseburg.

In football, Milhollin was a second-team all-SWC selection last fall, leading the Panthers into the second round of the state playoffs. He completed 163 of 268 passes for 2,070 yards and 20 touchdowns.

"He's just starting to touch the surface of his athletic ability," South head football coach Bill Singler said. "He's matured more and more each year."

For his senior project, Milhollin organized free football camps.
