The 6-foot-1 Individual Studies major made a big splash during his debut with the Hudson Valley football team in 2000, racking up 177 receiving yards against Lackawanna College, just two yards shy of Hudson Valley's single-game record (set by Jay Kearney in 1999). Utilizing a combination of speed and gritty focus, the Troy High School graduate shattered Hudson Valley's mark for receptions in a game later that season, tallying 11 catches against Navy Prep (the old record was nine catches in a game).
"He can catch anything thrown near him," said Bob Jojo, head
coach of Hudson Valley's Vikings.
"I just did what I could for the team," Miller said. "I'd
have been just as happy if it had been someone else doing it."
"I have been getting calls from Central Michigan, Louisville, Eastern Michigan, Hofstra, Michigan State, UConn and Rutgers," said Miller. "I've been receiving a lot of letters too."
However, he also boxes and throws a baseball hard enough that he's
had a tryout with the Cincinnati Reds.
"His ability is great, but he also has that fiery attitude you want in your players," Jojo said. "He's ready to take off."
