Area football player earns academic honor

Eastside graduate Justin Miller was recently named the National Football Foundation Scholar-Athlete of the Year for Northeast Indiana.

Miller was honored at the NFF Honors Dinner "Celebrating Our Legends IX" on Monday in West Lafayette.

He was joined by nine other regional scholar-athlete winners, and the first-ever Indiana Scholar-Athlete of the Year Award will be announced July 18 at the North-South All-Star Game Banquet in Indianapolis. The winner of the state award will be a candidate for the Midwest Scholar-Athlete of the Year honor.

Miller, an All-NECC defensive back, had a 4.0 GPA and scored 2,050 on the SAT. He will study chemistry and pre-law at Wabash.
