Miller added a rushing touchdown to account for 11 of the Beaver’s 13 touchdowns, while going 31 of 55 passing, and in the process earning the D9Sports.com Football Player of the Week Award for Week Two of the 2015 season.

Almost overshadowed by Miller’s unbelievable, video-game-like performance, was the effort of teammate Colin Read, who set the Pennsylvania single-game receiving yards mark with 355 on nine catches while hauling in three touchdowns.

For his efforts, Read is on the Week Two D9Sports.com Honor Roll along with 14 other outstanding performances from District 9 during the week.
