Student Athlete: Ryan Miller

Student Athlete: South Range's Ryan Miller

Canfield, OH (WYTV) – Ryan Miller is a leader, and like every good captain, his team comes first.

“Right now, I’m really focused on the season,” said Miller. “I couldn’t even tell you my stats right now, or how many touchdowns I’ve thrown. I know we’re 3-2, and we need to get better and start winning more.”

As quarterback of the Raiders each of the last three years, he’s done his fair share. South Range made the playoffs, and won the league last year, and Miller broke a school record for touchdown passes.

“That’s what I kind of want to leave. I want to make the playoffs this year, win the league, and leave that kind of legacy,” he said.  “And if the records come they come. But I’d rather be looked on how we did this season and how our team did.”

Miller is also a four year starter and 2nd team all-league catcher for the baseball team. His most impressive work though, is done in the classroom.

“Football is going to end some day. Baseball is going to end. My academics are going to take me beyond that. If I want to play football in college, or baseball, my academics come first, before that.”

Miller carries a 3.9 grade point average. The only “B” he received came in English his freshman year, and even that has served as a lesson.

“I probably could have got that “A” my freshman year, first year of high school coming in, not doing my best, not trying hard enough. But being a senior now, I know how to work. Something I’ve always heard is, ‘there’s always someone out there working harder than you, or just as hard.’ And if you want to be the best, or reach that goal, you just have to keep pushing through it, and work, because that’s how life is.”
