The Colorado Springs, Colorado, native is the fifth Oklahoma State player to enter the College Football Hall of Fame. Miller was a two-time First Team All American and earned unanimous honors in 1977. He twice finished as a top five Heisman Trophy finalist (second in 1977 and fourth in 1976). The only rusher in Oklahoma State history with three 1,000-yard seasons, he ranked fifth in the nation in rushing yards in 1976 (1,714) and third in 1977 (1,680). Miller also led the nation with 23 rushing touchdowns in 1976. The two-time Big Eight Offensive Player of the Year (1976, 1977) led the Cowboys to the 1976 conference title and postseason wins in the 1974 Fiesta Bowl and 1976 Tangerine Bowl, which led to a final No. 14 ranking for the Pokes. Miller led the Big Eight in rushing his final two seasons, boasting 1,887 yards in 1976 (note: Oklahoma State credits him with a different total than the NCAA) and 1,680 yards in 1977 – marks that ranked third and sixth all-time, respectively, at Oklahoma State. He set the Cowboy record with 26 career 100-yard rushing games. Sitting behind fellow College Football Hall of Miller ranked second in school history in rushing yards (4,754), rushing touchdowns (49) and rushing yards per game (113.2) while placing third in career all-purpose yards (5,305). The fifth overall pick in the 1978 NFL Draft, Miller played professionally for four seasons. Miller has been a regular volunteer for the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and Payne County Youth Services, among many other organizations.
