Concordia Quarterback puts the RSEQ on notice
Starting quarterback Trenton Miller put on a show last week against one of the nation’s most stout defensive units, Université de Montréal’s Carabins, in Saturday afternoon’s Stingers homecoming game . Despite the 41-27 loss, Miller was a force to be reckoned with as the team relied heavily on his arm and decision-making.
The Buffalo, NY native chewed up the Carabins secondary for 334 yards and four touchdowns. Even with the impressive performance, the first year MBA student and NCAA Division II product is still adapting to the nuances of the Canadian game. However, the humble Miller cites the watchful guidance offensive coordinator Matt Connell and head coach Mickey Donovan as the reason behind his apparent seamless transition to the CIS game.
“I come in with the expectation of completing every pass every game,” said Miller following the homecoming game loss. Undeterred by his monster game against some of the stiffest competition Canada has to offer, Miller remains a focused perfectionist.
“We didn’t put up as much [yards] as we expected,” he said. A student athlete through and through, Miller stated that his strongest motivation into coming north of the border was the chance of enrolling in Concordia’s world-class MBA program at the John Molson School of Business. Miller, who graduated early from Mars Hill University in North Carolina, was able to maintain his athletic eligibility due to his academic fast-tracking.
Looking forward, the Stingers seem to be in good hands with Miller under center as they prepare for a week against another tough opponent in the formidable Laval Rouge et Or.
