OGDEN, UTAH (10-11-2107) – Former West Hills High QB RASHAAN MILLER was recently recognized and selected as the BIG SKY ROOT SPORTS special teams player of the week on October 9th.

Miller has been a true athlete in high school, but particularly on the college circuit.

He has adapted to working as a wide receiver and punter especially in his college stint.

In just five games this year as a full-time punter with Southern Utah University, Miller has punted 34 times for a 40.6 yards a punt average.

Miller was honored for the game this last weekend versus the Cal Poly Mustangs.

Miller played a crucial role in this game keeping Cal Poly in their end of the field in the 20-14 win against the Mustangs.

He had 7 punts on Saturday, the longest of 55 yards, and 4 within the 20 yard line.

Miller’s punt of the day was late in the game as he pinned the Mustangs down to the 19-yard line with 2:51 left in the game last Saturday.

This particular punt helped lead to a Cal Poly fumble at the 44 yard line, which ultimately led Southern Utah University to take a knee and seal the deal.

Always fantastic to see a great talent that started their career in the East County and move on with great honors to become a huge success.
