NOTABLE QUOTES FROM BUCKEYES QB COMMIT BRAXTON MILLER

There were a few quotes that Huber Heights Wayne quarterback Braxton Miller made on Thursday that I felt really displayed what type of person and competitor he really is and what type of loyalty he possesses toward the state he calls home.

When asked if he would've gotten a tattoo of an 'F' on his arm if he had committed to Florida ...
"Probably not (while laughing) ... I'm from Ohio, man."

When asked about his individual goals ...
"My dream goal is, I want to be the No. 1 draft pick (in the NFL). That is my goal and I'm going to work as hard as I can everyday."

When asked about his future quarterback coach, Nick Siciliano ...
"He's a goofy character, man (laughing) ... He's just like another friend or adult or a pops, that I can look up to. He just looked out and guided me throughout this whole process. In the last two weeks I just said 'I'm going to shut this down and commit to you all because you all did me the respect offering one quarterback. So I'm going to show you my respect and commit to you all.'"

When asked how he became such a good player ...
"Just playing in the backyard. I think that's how I got so good playing with my big brother (Breyon). My brother's 23 right now, so I was playing with the big boys back in the day. They never picked me up so I'd get mad. That's why my dad said he wasn't surprised that I turned out to be so good."
