A 2007 American Football Coaches Association All-America First Team selection, Miller ranked third in the country in punting with a 45.4 average a year ago while helping the Cardinals to a 7-6 overall record, a Mid-American Conference West Division Co-Championship and the school’s first bowl berth since the 1996 campaign. Miller, who was also named to the 2007 Playboy Magazine Preseason All-America Team, was one of 10 semifinalists for the Ray Guy Award last fall, which goes to the nation’s most outstanding punter.
Miller has 186 career punts for 8,386 career punt yards and a 45.1 career average. His 186 punts rank as the fifth highest career total in Ball State history, while the 8,386 yards is the third highest career total in Ball State annals.
A year ago, Miller became only the second Ball State player to be named to the Playboy Magazine Preseason All-America Team. He joins former Ball State punter Brad Maynard as Ball State’s only two selections to the squad.
The Cardinals open the 2008 season Aug. 28, with a home game at Scheumann Stadium vs. Northeastern. Ball State will play a nationally televised home game the following week when the Cardinals host Navy in a Friday, Sept. 5, 7 p.m. game on ESPN.
