Shoreview resident earns collegiate honors

Charlie Miller wrapped up his collegiate football career last fall and he did so with a slew of honors. The Shoreview native attends Dartmouth College in Hanover, N.H.

Miller was named second-team All-Ivy League after recording 41 tackles, 1 1/2 which were for a loss. He also intercepted two passes and broke up five others in nine games, eight of which he started.

During the season, Miller earned a pair of player-of-the-week honors for his play in Dartmouth’s 20-17 victory over Towson on Oct. 15. He made seven tackles, broke up a pass, intercepted a pass and blocked a field goal attempt.

The blocked field goal came on a 22-yard attempt with 2:19 left in the fourth quarter and helped preserve Dartmouth’s victory.

For his efforts in the Towson game, Miller was awarded the weekly Gold Helmet Award, which is given out by the New England Football Writers’ Association. He was also named the Ivy League special teams player of the week.

Miller also picked up a pair of academic honors following the season. In early November, he was named to the College Sports Information Directors of America Academic All-District football team. In December, he earned academic All-Ivy League honors for the 2016 fall season.

An economics major, Miller has a 3.48 grade-point average.

Miller attended and graduated from Totino-Grace High School in Fridley. He helped the Eagles win three state championships and as a senior was first-team all-state and played in the high school all-star game. Miller also played baseball and hockey at Totino-Grace.
