Aaron Miller, an offensive tackle on the Kentucky football team, has left the team for personal reasons, Coach Rich Brooks has announced. "We certainly will miss Aaron as a football player, but our first concern is for him and we wish him well," Brooks said. "He will not be with us this fall but we are hopeful he will rejoin us at a later date."
