    Meet the New Softball Coaches

    The PRHS softball program finds two new coaches to help the Varsity and JV teams find success this year
    Meet the New Softball Coaches


    New Coach Paul Miller is ready to take over the varsity team and Kenneth Craig Salazar is ready to take over the jv team. Both coaches hope to take their teams to the top and make CIF this year. 

    Miller attended  Morro Bay high school, home of the Pirates. 

    “Growing up I played baseball, soccer, and golf but my first love was baseball, I started playing that when I was eight or nine,” Miller said. 

    “Winning is a big thing, but I don’t get upset if we lose. As long as we play well and tried our best. Thats the way it goes and thats all that matters to me.”

    He coached travel softball for 10 years starting in 2014 and started coaching at PRHS this year, 2024. Whenever Miller is on the field he is always reenforcing the players and encouraging them to do their best. 

    “I’m not much of a yeller, if one of the girls makes a mistake they already know they messed up, why as a coach do I need to yell at them?” Miller said.

     Every game Miller makes sure that the players try their best and learn from their mistakes. 

    “It’s ok if you mess up that’s just how you get better.”  Miller said. 

    When the season finishes a CIF title is always nice but as long as the players have and want to continue playing that is what matters the most.

    Despite his older age, give age, he continues to coach softball at the high school level. Over the years Salazar has coached, played and coached softball for over 20 years loving every moment. 

    “I’m coaching for the love of the game” Salazar said.

    “I don’t need trophies and success, but if I see a kid grow not just physically but mentally as well that is my reward.”

    He has helped over 30 kids get into colleges through softball and his coaching. He still keeps in contact with these kids today

    He is a fan of winning but looks for self improvement and personal growth with the players more than anything 

    At the end of the year Salazar wants to make sure his players have a memorable time and when they graduate they can look back and  remember the experiences, as well as the good times.
