Another outstanding DCHS Tiger football athlete is moving on to the collegiate level after he graduates from high school.
Bradley Miller, a senior, signed a letter of intent Tuesday morning to play for Thomas More College, a Catholic Liberal Arts College of the Diocese in Covington, Kentucky.
Miller’s parents, Michael and Dee Dee Miller joined Bradley for the signing along with his high school coaches and several of his Tiger teammates.
“I just visited there (Thomas More) and I felt it was the right place for me. I really love their academic program and everything they had to offer me. Their football program has been very consistently in the play-offs. Its an all around great program,” said Miller.
During the team banquet in January, Bradley was named the Most Valuable Player for the 2017 season. He was also selected as the Most Outstanding Defensive Back in Region 3 Class 4A.
“Anytime we have a guy who has an opportunity to play at the next level its very exciting for our program and for other guys who are still in our program to see guys like Bradley who have played for four years and who have contributed to our program on and off the field. It’s a good thing for everybody involved,” said Coach Steve Trapp.
“What he has done on the football field, especially during his Junior year, was probably the best ever for a defensive back at DeKalb County High School and being an All-State performer. But he has really taken care of business in the classroom as well. He had a lot of different opportunities to go play at different places (colleges) and all of them are high academic institutions. Good test scores, good GPAs, and good football lead to scholarships,” added Coach Trapp.
During the presentation of his MVP Award in January, Coach Trapp said “This guy played a lot of football for us this year as a senior. I don’t think he came off the field a whole lot. He was on special teams, defense, and offense. We put him in as running back in a couple of games. He returned kicks and punts. Last year as a junior he probably had the best defensive back year ever as a DCHS football player but he didn’t have as many opportunities this year because people just wouldn’t throw at him. Last year he was All-State in different areas and pre-season All State this year. He is a tremendous high school football player,” said Coach Trapp.
