BAY CITY, Mich. – Ohio Dominican junior quarterback Mark Miller (Cincinnati, Ohio) was named a recipient of the GLIAC's Fall 2013 Meijer Commissioner's Awards, one of just 12 student-athletes to earn that award in the conference.
The awards, sponsored by Meijer, Incorporated, are presented after the Fall, Winter, and Spring athletic seasons to six female and six male student-athletes that excel both in the classroom and on the fields of play.
"It is with great pleasure that I offer congratulations on behalf of the GLIAC to our 12 award winners," GLIAC Commissioner Dell Robinson said. "The accomplishments of the 12 student-athletes are a shining example of the future leaders and individuals who serve as change agents on our campuses. I would like to thank Meijer for their continued support that allows the GLIAC to honor our top student-athletes."
Miller, a middle childhood education major, carries a 3.76 GPA in the classroom and is an active member of the team's community outreach programs, which have included volunteer efforts with the Second and Seven Foundation, working with the local VA Hospital, and more. He is a three-time GLIAC Academic Excellence award winner and is a member of ODU's President's Society, a group of students that represent the university at major functions.
On the field, Miller threw for 2,648 yards and 24 touchdowns against just seven interceptions. He completed 67.5 percent of his passes (218-of-323) and averaged 240.7 yards passing per game.
An Honorable Mention All-GLIAC selection, Miller was named the GLIAC Player of the Week after throwing for 370 yards and four touchdowns against Lake Erie, and he also threw for three touchdowns in wins against Georgetown, Hillsdale and Grand Valley last fall.
