We begin this year’s Top 10 countdown with the fans’ choice to make the list: the incredible season culminating the career of Reid Miller at Northwestern.
The All-OSN Offensive Player of the Year was 231-of 419 passing (55.1 percent) for 3,221 yards and 35 touchdowns. He led the Great American Conference is passing yards and was eighth in Division II in the category.
With the 35 passing TDs, Miller finished his Ranger career as the all-time leader with 73 total. He also owns season records in passing touchdowns, passing yards, passing yards per game, completions and attempts.
Twice in 2016, Miller threw five touchdowns passes while throwing no interceptions, in wins over East Central and Southern Nazarene.
He was also responsible for seven touchdowns twice as well in ’16. Miller broke his own school record with seven TD passes in the season-opening win over Arkansas-Monticello and then threw six more and rushed for one in the Rangers’ victory over Oklahoma Baptist.
