Trey Miller no Longer Enrolled at Navy

In all the furor going alongside the allegations sweeping the Naval Academy it is easy to miss other news related to the football team. Thus it has somewhat flown under the radar that former Mids starting quarterback Trey Miller is no longer listed on the roster.

In all the furor going alongside the allegations sweeping the Naval Academy it is easy to miss other news related to the football team. Thus it has somewhat flown under the radar that former Mids starting quarterback Trey Miller is no longer listed on the roster. According to a report from The (Annapolis, Md.) Capital this past week, former starting quarterback Trey Miller has been dismissed from the Academy for what is being called an honors violation related to academics.

The only comment so far on the situation came from public affairs officer John Schofield. "We can confirm that Midshipman Miller is no longer enrolled at the U.S. Naval Academy. Midshipman Miller's disenrollment was determined through internal administrative proceedings. Midshipmen are afforded privacy in these proceedings and details are not releasable."

This is obviously a trying time for Navy fans and though not in the same realm as other issues within the football team this basically still sucks. Sure, Miller had lost his job as quarterback with the emergence of Keenan Reynolds, but by all accounts he had handled the demotion with dignity and there was a growing feeling that he was positioning himself for a major role within the fabric of what the Mids are trying to do this fall.

Miller remember had been moved to slot back during spring camp and was taking to the position like a duck to water. With no experience at the position after the graduation of three seniors, most noticeably standout Gee Gee Greene, the fleet footed Miller looked a likely bet to earn his way into playing time sooner rather than later. Even with his fumble issues at the quarterback spot there is no doubt that the thought of Miller and Reynolds on the field at the same time would have allowed Navy to maximize their offense potential and that the combination had the potential to cause opponent defensive coordinators some sleepless nights.

Now, barring some early summer change in status, that is not going to happen.
