2019 Season Outlook
Sophomore Hunter Miller is one of several candidates vying to earn the starting center job in 2019. The position is open following the graduation of 2018 seniors Tanner Farmer and Cole Conrad. The 6-4, 320-pound Miller saw limited action as a redshirt freshman and despite battling injuries during the spring he figures to be a key player in the center race during fall camp.
A walk-on from Cross County High School, Miller has done excellent work in the classroom, compiling a 3.551 cumulative grade-point average while majoring in civil engineering. Miller was a 2018 Academic All-Big Ten honoree, and he has been a member of the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll every semester of his career.
2018 (Redshirt Freshman)
Miller appeared in two games on the offensive line as a redshirt freshman. He made his Husker debut with extensive playing time on the offensive line in the second half of Nebraska's game at No. 19 Michigan, and he also saw action in the Huskers' win over Bethune-Cookman.
Miller contributed on Nebraska’s offensive scout team while sitting out the 2017 season as a redshirt.
Before Nebraska (Cross County HS)
Miller played both offensive and defensive line for Coach Ty Twarling at Cross County High School in Stromsburg, Neb. Miller helped the Cougars to state playoff appearances each of the past three seasons.
On defense, Miller recorded 83 tackles during his junior and senior seasons, including 21 solo stops. Miller played in nine games for the Cougars in both the 2015 and 2016 seasons. As a senior, he was responsible for 56 tackles, eight tackles for loss, one sack, one interception and two blocked field goals. His play in 2016 earned Miller first-team Class C-2 all-state honors. In 2015, Miller earned honorable-mention all-area accolades.
As the 2014 Cross County High School Lifter of the Year, Miller holds numerous school lifting records. Miller was also a member of the wrestling, baseball and track teams. During his freshman and sophomore wrestling campaigns, Miller claimed the Crossroads Conference title and was a state qualifier as a junior. Miller also set Cross County’s freshman win record. As a member of the track team, Miller set the school shot put record in 2015 and was a state qualifier.
Hunter is the son of Grant and Amy Miller and was born on Oct. 16, 1998. A civil engineering major, Miller has volunteered with Husker Heroes, the Nebraska Football Road Race, Operation Christmas Child Shoebox and local hospital visits.
