Eddie Miller visits with ITV

Freshman quarterback Eddie Miller recently visited with ITV and talked about the Cardinals stable of quarterbacks, fall camp and working on the scout team.

With a quarterback controversy that never really materialized when Head Coach Bobby Petrino named junior quarterback Stefan LeFors the starter, freshman quarterback Eddie Miller can now continue to prepare himself for the future, as well as assist the team in preparing for future opponents.

Miller, who was one of the top rated quarterbacks on the West Coast, will redshirt this season and direct the scout team this fall.

"Well, I'm going to join the scout team and I'm pretty excited about it," said Miller. "That should help me get a lot of experience. Myself and Preston Smith will be redshirting this year, so it should be a good developing year for us."

By becoming the quarterback of the scout team, Miller will attempt to provide a glimpse of what the Cardinal defense can expect out of upcoming opponents in 2003. For the next few months, Eddie Miller will basically be trying his best imitate the offenses of Syracuse, Tulane, TCU, Cincinnati and others.

With an up close look at the stable of Cardinal quarterbacks, Miller had good words to share about his fellow signal-callers.

"They all look great," continued Miller. Stefan LeFors is really looking good out there and Justin Rascati and Michael Bush look good too. We have a really good group of quarterbacks. I know I can say that for sure."

While fellow true freshman and local product Michael Bush has seemingly grabbed the headlines, Miller has enjoyed his experience on the practice fields during fall camp.

"I love it honestly," Miller explained. "The speed of the game has picked up a lot more since high school. My first real for it is when I start running scout."

His dedication to the team, which includes a three week visit during spring camp in which he paid for completely, should make Eddie Miller a dangerous scout team quarterback that is sure to throw numerous challenges at the Cardinals first unit defense during practices this fall.
