Eau Claire Regis basketball standout Connor Miller to play at Division 1 Samford University

Eau Claire Regis basketball player Connor Miller signed a National Letter of Intent today to play his college ball at Division1 Samford University in 2011-12. Samford University is located in Birmingham, Alabama and is part of the Southern Conference.
The 6-foot 3-inch senior guard scored 397 points for the Ramblers last season in helping Regis to a WIAA Division 3 state runner-up finish in Madison.
Connor Miller says: "It's been my life long dream and goal, it's what I've worked for, for 18 years, and it feels great to have the opportunity to play Division 1 basketball. It signifies the hard work and it feels great to have the opportunity to play in a conference like that. I wanted to sign early just because right now it's a huge load of stress off my back, I just want to enjoy my senior season and have my focus on my senior year and get back down to Madison and win a gold ball."

Samford University is in the Southern Conference that features schools like Appalachian State, Chattanooga, Wofford, and Davidson. SportScene 13's Bob Gallaher spoke on the phone with Bulldogs assistant coach Lee Burgess who helped recruit Miller to Samford. Coach Burgess says Samford is thrilled to have Connor on board.

Lee Burgess says: "Connor just embodies that to a "T". We want kids that are very good basketball players, what we identify as a very good basketball player, have the skill set to shoot it, pass it, and handle the ball, things like that are important, being unselfish and he definitely was a great fit for us."
