Tyler (KETK) — He was left to die in a rundown motel.
He was placed in a horrible orphanage where he was abused.
He was put in 13 different foster homes where he suffered more abuse.
Reverend Jerome Milton overcame all of that to become one of the winningest coaches in Texas.
His Bishop Gorman track teams have won 10 state championships.
Reverend Milton has coached the Crusaders and Lady Crusaders for the last 25 years.
He has sent 105 kids to college on scholarships and every one of them has graduated.
He's adopted six children through the foster care program and he's been a blessing to everyone he has touched.
KETK Sports talked with him about his upcoming retirement.
"I may not have a million dollars, I may not see a million dollars, I may not hold a million dollars," Rev. Milton said. "But if my coaching has made them a better person, then my living will not be in vain."
