CEDAR CITY, Utah, Oct. 15 - Southern Utah's Brock Miller was named the ROOT Sports Big Sky Conference Special Teams Player of the Week following his performance last week at Montana. Miller, a junior from Solana Beach, Calif., punted seven times for 301 yards (an average of 43.0 yards per kick) and pinned the Grizzlies inside their own 20 yard line four times. Montana didn't have much luck returning Miller's punts either, as the Grizzlies wound up with minus-two punt return yards. Miller's biggest contribution came when he didn't punt the ball, however, instead tucking it and running 22 yards on fourth and two to sustain an SUU drive that led to the field goal that gave the Thunderbirds the lead for good.
Miller is Southern Utah's second BSC special teamer of the week this season. Josh Smith earned the award following his performance returning kicks at Portland State.
