Miller: Tomorrow will be a wakeup call

Lamar Miller is a talented freshman running back who had an excellent day at practice today. Read on to see everything he was talking about afterwards.

On his two long runs:
One would have been a touchdown, probably 70 yards, and another was 50 yards.

On how the long TD felt:
It felt great. I cut back and made one person miss and showed my speed and talent.

On expectations:
My expectation is just to get in and help the team win, get UM back to where it was.

On getting into full pads tomorrow:
It's gonna be a wakeup call for me. It'll be my first time in full equipment. I gotta get used to the blocking scheme and the hitting.

On the hype he's gotten from high school:
I get motivated sometimes. I'm just trying to stay focused, humble, and help my team get better.

On picking things up:
The toughest part will probably be blocking. I gotta know my assignment, stay focused, and do the right thing.

On the playbook:
It's a very difficult playbook. We gotta adjust to it and study. I try to focus on it every night and know my assignment and alignment.

On playing as a freshman:
When I came on my visit, Coach Shannon said if I come he'll give me a chance to play. I just try to come out and practice hard and compete.

On his role on special teams:
I'm on kickoff and punt as a returner. I did that my whole high school career.

On sitting at first behind the older backs:
My ninth grade year I had to do it but I was still competing and helping the team win. I'm just trying to stay focused and help my team go undefeated and take things one game at a time.

On Jacory:
He's a great quarterback, a great leader. He just helps make us focused.
