Huber Heights Wayne is no stranger to Mark Dantonio and his staff. While at Cincinnati, Dantonio pulled Mike Mickens out of the head coach Jay Minton's program and the results saw Mickens earn All-American status.
On the regular season, the 6-foot-1, 180-pound receiver pulled down 32 balls for 501 yards and four touchdowns. During the playoffs, teams looked to shut down Miller and force super star quarterback Braxton Miller to throw to other options.
However, Miller to Miller looked to have succeeded when needed most on Saturday night as quarterback looked to hit a streaking receiver down the sidelines in the game's final drive. The catch was ruled out of bounds and the Warriors chances of winning the school's first state title ended on the next play.
"My foot was in!" Miller said Monday night about the next to last play of the game. While there are a few photos of Miller making the catch with his foot clearly inbounds, the game and season are over and it is time to move forward. While the sting of coming up short is still in his memory, Armani knows the season was a dream season and he was part of only the second team in school history to have reached the fifteenth week of the season. Miller hoped to have visit the Spartans during the season, however, with playoff games on Saturday's, any chance ended as the Warriors advanced in the playoffs. Spartan Digest will continue to follow Armani Miller in the coming months as he learns more about the interest Michigan State may have.
