Capital HS ATH Matt Miller (Helena, MT) signed with Boise State last February as a member of the 2010 recruiting class and the date for his arrival on campus for summer conditioning is fast approaching. He recently participated in The Badlands Bowl as a member of Team Montana as they came up just short against Team North Dakota. He still garnered Team Montana's Offensive MVP Award as he set record left and right in the game. "I had 12 catches for 205 yards," he said. "Winning the Offensive MVP Award was bitter sweet. I would have rather won the game," he added. Miller's 12 receptions and 205 receiving yards are both records for The Badlands Bowl.

The summer conditioning program for the Bronco football team is coming up in just a matter of weeks. Boise State seemingly has an excellent turnout each year for the summer conditioning program and it looks like this year will be no different. It seems the arrival date for each 2010 signee will be in early July. "I'm coming down on July 10th," Miller said. "I'm really excited and I think getting down there early will help me learn the playbook better. Obviously, working out with the team will be great too."

The comfort level with the coaching staff seems to be the constant theme with each new Bronco signee. Miller also held offers from Stanford, Washington State, North Carolina, Arkansas, Arizona State, and Oregon State. The coaching staff at Boise State was the difference maker for the future Bronco. "I felt most comfortable there and with the coaches there," he stated. "It was between them and Oregon State. I just felt that Boise would be a better place for me."

Matt (6'3, 210, 4.55) considers himself a student of the game. He'll have the opportunity to learn from some of the best WRs in the country and he's looking forward to beginning his career on The Blue. "I think the WRs will help me a lot in learning the system and how they do things," he said. "Hopefully, they can teach me a little something to help me improve my game. They're all good guys and I'm looking forward to getting down there."

Miller received All-State honors in football, basketball, and track. Is there a chance that he could play another sport at Boise State? "I think I'm going to focus solely on football. It's real difficult to do multiple sports in college," he said. "I wouldn't rule it out if an opportunity came up, though."

Matt believes his HS career at Capital was a big learning experience. HS is always about figuring out who you are as an individual and learning lessons that will last a lifetime. "I learned a lot of good lessons and made a lot of great friends," he said. "There's no better feeling than wearing brown and gold on Friday nights. I'm already bleeding blue and orange too. Don't forget where you came from," he added.
