(WLNS) – Thursday means it’s time to meet our newest 6 Sports Player of the Week and with football playoffs in full swing it was a linebacker who gets to bring home the hardware this week.
Certainly a “storm” to be reckoned with on the turf.
6 Sports Player of the Week is Storm Miller of Mason football.
Storm Miller, senior fullback for the Mason Bulldogs, who made quite the impact last Friday night scoring four touchdowns in their 35-28 playoff win against Fowlerville.
A guy who has fought through it all, beating cancer last year and now defeating any obstacle on the gridiron.
He’s an athlete who certainly defines his own name.
But we had to ask him, how his parents came up with it?
“Well, it was a couple reasons”, explains Miller. “We have a very common last name with Miller so they wanted my first name to be a little uncommon and, of course, I was born during a thunderstorm. Like when my mom brought me home we had no electricity at the house.”
His coach agree that after everything Storm’s gone through his name is appropriate.
“That’s kinda funny…but yeah, it’s very appropriate for him,” said Mason coach Jerry Vanhavel. “He’s gone through a little bit of a storm of an off-season and he’s always been a little bit of a storm on the field because he plays and I guess he’s just very fitting for him in many ways.”
