MAC Players to Watch, 10-16-18: It’s Miller Time

Scotty Miller 5'10 163 WR-Senior Bowling Green

Since Miller has arrived on campus, he's been a terror despite his lack of size.  His body control, route-running expertise and fearlessness all get high marks.  While capable of playing outside, he's most adept at working in-between the hash marks on inside dig routes, post corners and option routes.  He is the best receiver in the MAC when it comes to disguising his intentions on jerk and return-pivot patterns.  Linebackers, safeties and nickel backs have to maintain patience against his first moves.  Quite capable of tracking the ball versus tight man coverage, he can get his body to become limp along the sidelines. Perhaps most impressive is his ability to finish through double teams down the field.  Once he gets the ball in his hands, he uses his long speed to challenge defenses.

The former Barrington HS (Ill.) product has been a speed demon since his days at the prep level.  The former track and field standout holds personal-bests of 10.53 seconds in the 100 meters, 21.26 seconds in the 200 meters  and 6.36 seconds in the 55 meters.  Through six games, Miller has 42 receptions for 640 yards (15.6 YPR) and six touchdowns. This includes a 13-catch, 166-yard, two-touchdown performance against Oregon in Week 1 of the 2018 campaign.   For his career, the Falcons standout has 186 receptions and 20 receiving touchdowns.  Keep an eye on the Falcons speedster the rest of the year.  The MAC's leading receiver is on pace for career-highs in receptions, receiving yards and touchdown receptions.
