Flying wing, defensive back: 1953-64
One word comes to mind when describing the athletic achievements, including his days as a member of the Blue Bombers: champion.
A Winnipeg product who cut his teeth on the gridiron with the Winnipeg Light Infantry junior program and then with the Winnipeg Rams – who won the Canadian Intermediate Championship in 1954 – Miller was part of the Bombers ‘Glory Days’, winning Grey Cups in 1958, 1959, 1961 and 1962. But Miller also won soccer championships as a goalkeeper with the Luxton Royals and Winnipeg Scottish and basketball titles with the YMHA and the Kings Best Bombers and Labatt Blues.
Miller wore six different numbers during his days with the Bombers, and donned #92 in his first season. He was inducted into the Winnipeg Football Club Hall of Fame in 1996 and the Manitoba Sports Hall of Fame in 2015.
