2009 Small School Co-Player of the Year

Written by: on Tuesday, January 5th, 2010


CO-POY: David Miller, Greensburg Central Catholic – You could have confused Greensburg Central Catholic’s offense as the “lather, rinse, repeat” offense. Sure, quarterback Trent Hurley threw for over 1,700 yards this season, but David Miller was the main guy in the skill player department that made the Centurions offense click. Miller ran for 2,535 yards and scored more than 40 touchdowns. He surpassed 4,000 career rushing yards in the state championship game against Lancaster Catholic. Over the last two seasons, Miller scored more than 70 touchdowns. He accounted for 47.5 percent of Greensburg CC’s school-record 522 points in 2009.

    i think rob heatheringtons was the best player all around. kid is just a great athlete, touch as nails, and smart. hes better then all 3 them combined

    Deontae is a really really good player. Personally from having seen all 3 play, Josh Seidel was the best. But Deontae had a great year and won states. Cant take that away from him. Miller is tough. If you switch all 3 RB’s around and put them on a different team. McCort and Clariton and GCC all would have made it to states. They are all interchangeable.

    Why no votes for Josh Seidel? He carried McCort to the state title game, with over 2,500 all purpose yards and 30+ touchdowns. Also he set the school single game and season records for rushing yards and touchdowns. And did all of this with the death of his father being a week before opening kick off.

    Well I can tell anyone who is reading this that Deontae did not make that comment. He knows that he could not compete with David one on one.
    However, you can give Deontae more yards per carry… and you can give David more touchdowns, more total rushing yards per game, more total yards in the season, and being an all-around better back in terms of strength awareness and the exact same 40 time.

    Deonte Howard isn’t left in the games to run up the score. Look at the box score’s of the Clairton games if you don’t beleive me. Most of Clairton’s points are score in the first half and if there are TD’s in the 2nd half its because of the backups. Howard is usually taken out early in the 3rd.

    I respect you Muzzy, your a great coach. I’m not going to argue which player was better. Lets respect 2 talented kids that took their teams along way this past season. I honestly never saw Miller live. But i’ve seen Howard play 5-6 times this past season. There’s alot to like about both backs. I think Miller should’ve had some MAC offers. The knock on his speed makes no sense to me because he outran Aliquippa.

  6. Deontae Howard says:

    Its not nice to take shots at other players who recieve awards. If i recall my yards per carry are better and he has more carries than me. plus i have a STATE CHAMPIONSHIP. HAVE A NICE DAY

  7. Matt says:

    Its amazing that when Deonte is left in the run up the score in over half of Clairton’s games, David has under 15 carries in half of his games and he still outperformed Deonte. Is this supposed to be a joke?

  8. Muzzy Colosimo says:

    How does Deonte have stats that make him a co player with Miller

  9. Muzzy Colosimo says:

    Like Deonte has stats even close to Miller’s what a joke you guys are.
