Miller happy with decision to attend SMU

Often a high school prospect is torn when making the decision where to continue his football career at the college level. That's not the case for Aledo's Christian Miller. Miller made his pledge to SMU this summer, go inside to see why Miller said this is a dream come true for the standout offensive guard.

When talking to Aledo's Christian Miller, it's not hard to figure out where he stands on his current commitment to Southern Methodist University.

"There is no place in the world I would rather go to school at," Miller told Sunday evening. "It's been my life long dream to be a Mustang and play on the Hilltop, that dream is getting closer to reality everyday."

Miller has attended SMU games ever since he can remember, cheering for the Mustangs during mostly bad times, the talented offensive lineman is looking forward to making a difference at SMU.

"June Jones is definitely the right man for the job to get this program turned around," Miller said. "He is one of the main reasons I committed so early, this program is going to be something very special in the years to come. I not only want to be a part of that, I want to be part of the reason for the turn around."

Miller has currently helped his Aledo High School team to an undefeated 3-0 record, beating Stephenville for the first time in five years.

"Our season is going great," Miller said. "We beat Stephenville 24-20 that was the best game yet. They are our big rivals; we haven't beaten them in five years until this season."

Miller and his family have had season tickets for Mustang games for a long time, so heading for Dallas on the weekends won't be anything new.

"I went to the Texas State game, I loved the atmosphere," Miller said. "The student section was really crazy; it's only going to get better."

Miller also got to see a lot of former teammates and friends from Aledo that now attend SMU.

"I was glad to see Cole (Loftin) getting to play some as a true freshman," Miller said. "He is doing well."

Miller was also impressed with the new offensive system that Jones has installed at SMU.

"I thought the offense was awesome," Miller said. "I can't wait to be a part of it. They have such a diverse passing attack."

While Miller hasn't missed a game in sometime, he isn't planning on starting this weekend.

"Oh yes sir I will be at the TCU game," Miller said. "That's always a great game. I wouldn't miss that one for anything."

Miller has grown a little over the summer, according to the talented offensive guard.

"Right now I'm 6-foot-5, 285-pounds," Miller said. "I'm working out hard; I want to be at my best for my senior season and for my future college career."
