***This "flashback post" was originally posted at AugustaEagles.blogspot.com (my "old" blog). It is still there but I no longer post there. I moved it to this blog because Matt is someone I am tracking, and pulling for.***
This post made me think of former Eagle Matt Miller, who during the past four seasons scored over 3000 points, won nearly 100 regular season games, and led the Eagles to two national top ten finishes, a southeast regional championship, a southeast regional runner up finish, and an East Coast championship. Matt embodies everything we hope to inspire and develop in the young people in our program. He takes every opportunity available to make himself extraordinary in everything he pursues. During the time I've known him, he has become a truly exceptional student, basketball player, and person. And I am confident he will continue to excel in whichever activities he pursues in the years and decades to come. It was great to talk to him in the interview above during his first break from a tough first year of college.
