Breathitt’s Junior center determined to overcome recent flooding
Evan Miller is a ’24 who has an enviable frame and among the longest arms anywhere in the high school game along the interior offensive line. He will have to really fight to ward off the challenge of his younger brother, Carson Miller, who is rounding into quite a center prospect in his own right.Fletcher W. Long, KPGFootball’s Senior Scout
Evan “Big E” Miller is a prospect at any of the three interior offensive line posts. He is 6’3,” weighs 275-pounds, and plays offensive center.
Is he smart enough to make the reads required of a player at the center position? We would say so. His having a 4.28 GPA and 21 registered test score on the ACT would fairly indicate thusly.
They call him “Big E” around Breathitt County. Breathitt was among the counties hardest hit by the recent flooding in the Appalachia mountain region of Kentucky and Big E and his family have been instrumental in both cleanup and resurgence.
Big E has been vocal about the natural tragedy and whether it will impact Bobcat football going forward. “The flood set us back, but it will never keep us down,” the rising junior announced.
Evan has been offered by Union College. Coach John Luttrell has evinced a propensity, and frankly, a talent at keeping top-flight mountain talent at home in the mountains.
Luttrell would know something about Bulldog talent named, “Miller.” Evan’s dad has his own jersey retired for his playing career in Barbourville, Kentucky.
Will Evan make a home on 310 College Street like his father before him? We will have to wait and see.
Evan is just entering his junior season. His already having been offered is an indication of the potential for him collecting many other offers, presenting many other opportunities for him to get his education and continue playing a sport he relishes and appears to love.
As for playing with his “little brother” Evan has additionally been just as vocal about his thoughts on that subject. Evan published a social media post, before Breathitt’s first scrimmage this preseason, which said the following, verbatim,…”Nothing beats getting to rock my first Friday night with my little bro, Carson!”
Can he hold off little brother, Carson, who is hard charging and after the first-team reps himself at the same position? Hard to say, both of them are outstanding footballers.
The competition between the two should be really fun to watch as the season progresses. While it may not be at offensive center, it will be hard to keep Carson Miller out of the lineup this entire season, in spite of his being a freshman.
This will be a situation this magazine will continue to monitor. Who knows, the two Miller boys may end up along the offensive front playing side by side. Wouldn’t that be something?
