HUBER HEIGHTS — Wayne football coach Jay Minton was happy for Wayne graduate Braxton Miller’s return to the Ohio State offense after missing the entire season last year to injury and recording two touchdowns in Monday night’s victory against Virginia Tech.
“First of all, it’s no surprise,” said Minton. “Again, I think the kid could play any position he wanted to play… But, I’m so happy to see him happy, especially after the game…and just that big wide smile. He’s been through so much. To have to sit out last year when they win the National Championship…, but they’ve given him another chance and another opportunity. I just feel like so many great things are happening for him right now and it’s a blessing to see that. I love it because he gave thanks to where thanks should be given to.”
Minton said he’s pretty pleased with Miller’s development and his moving forward.
“It’s hard to tell what he’s going to do the rest of the season,” added Minton. “We’re just praying for his health, that he stays healthy and keeps rolling. It’s going to be exciting to see…”
“For him to come back in that fashion and with that success has got to be a special moment in his life,” added Minton.
Minton said that he expects that children will probably be mimicking Miller’s spin move on one of his touchdowns that has become a part of the “highlight reels” from the game.
