Cashion’s Bryce Miller – Character Counts Presented by Cowboy Driving Academy

By Rachelle Rogers

The Cashion Wildcat football team went 11-1 in 2018, losing only in the second round of the Class A playoffs. For some, that’s an excellent season, but for Senior Wildcat Bryce Miller, he’s hoping to prove that was no fluke this year. Miller is one of the defensive leaders racking up 46 tackles and five sacks. On offense, Coach Dud Robertson, the wildcat offensive line coach, says, “He’s more of an H-back type of kid,” playing both fullback and tight end.

When he’s is not on the football field, you can find Bryce training for track and power lifting, but he’s much more than just an athlete. He puts the same work ethic into his 4.0 GPA. Bryce scored a 28 on his ACT and is also a member of the National Honor Society, the academic team, and a member of Business Professionals of America.

Sometimes it can be difficult to keep teens who are well rounded and successful from getting a big head, but Bryce is a humble young man who doesn’t say much and struggles bragging on himself. He would rather let his actions speak for him.

“Bryce understands that if he wants something, then he’s got to work for it,” states Coach Robertson. “He shows up everyday. He’s never missed a day of summer workouts. He’s very dedicated. Whether it’s on the field or on his school work, Bryce always gives his best effort. I think that starts in the home, he has great parents who encourage excellence.”

Bryce is thankful to all those who have helped shape him over the years and become the young man that he is today. Bryce says, “My role model is Coach Robertson, because he is always pushing me and expects my best at all times.”

To relax, Bryce enjoys playing video games, hiking, and rock wall climbing. But summer relaxing is over now and he’s ready to get back out on the field with his team for his senior season. He’s most excited to play Minco this year because he knows they will be tough.
