Rivals features Matt Miller and Helena Capital


miller7

Rivals.com has two free articles up today featuring both Matt Miller and his Helena Capital football team. The articles are by Dallas Jackson of Rivals High. Here is a short excerpt from the first on Matt Miller:

Montana’s No. 1 player narrows list

The No. 1 player in the state of Montana has six schools left on his list.

“It is surreal,” three-star athlete Matt Miller said. “Sometimes I want it to be over and live a normal life, but I always feel very thankful for the opportunities I have.”

Miller and the 10-0 Helena (Mont.) Capital High Bruins are set to make a run at a fourth consecutive state title and while Miller is quick to talk about his team, right now the focus is on him.

“There are a lot of things I have to look at,” Miller said. “Being comfortable at the school, the prestige of the program, and what kind of education you are going to get are all important factors.

“From there you can eliminate some schools and start building relationships with the places that may be the right fit.”

It’s not clear where the 6-4, 205-pounder will play in college – he plays multiple positions at Capital and is listed as an “athlete” in the RivalsHigh recruiting database – but many schools appear interested in trying to figure that out.

You can read the whole article here.

With Stanford apparently still on Millers short list it would be very interesting if he eventually chose there to continue his college career along with Josh Huestis and Jos Tinkle.

Here is a short excerpt from the first on Helena Capital:

Big football being played in Big Sky country

Pat Murphy knows what you’re thinking when you hear Helena, Montana.

“We certainly have our Cowboy clientele,” he said. “But we have everything a usual middle-sized city has. We’ve got government workers, construction workers, engineers, teachers and our fair share of ranchers.”

And one heck of a high school football team.

The Helena (Mont.) Capital High Bruins are 10-0 this season and ride a 31-game winning streak into the first round of the Montana AA playoffs this weekend.

Murphy, in his sixth season at the school, is hoping to lead his team to a fourth-straight state title. Not that many people know it. When you’re in the nation’s fifth-smallest media market (of the 210 Neilsen recognizes), the word doesn’t always get out too quickly.

“We are under the radar,” the team’s star player Matt Miller said. “I am sure people overlook us and what we have done. We have good athletes up here and our team is just as good as any you can find in a lot of states.”

Murphy says the kids are determined to keep it that way.

Both articles are pretty good you should check them out.
