GLEN ROCK — Brady Miller has stepped up as one of the most proficient passers in North Jersey, sparking Glen Rock to four wins in five games and making the Panthers legitimate North 1, Group 2 playoff contenders.
But there’s much more to the senior quarterback than a strong right arm and the ability to read defenses. In fact, what Miller does on the field barely scratches the surface of who he is.
“He’s a throwback to the way kids used to be,” Glen Rock football coach Jim Kurz said. “He’s an old-school soul, if you know what I mean.”
A lot of Miller’s personality may have been shaped by his experiences as a young boy, when he traveled to different countries with his family. Miller says he wasn’t mature enough to fully appreciate the experience at the time, but it definitely had an impact.
“From early on, I wanted to serve,” said Miller, who has applied to the United States Military and Naval academies. “I didn’t really express it until high school, but I always felt it was something I wanted to do.
