Sun running back named CJFL offensive player of the year

Sun's Miller best in CJFL

Malcolm Miller's record-setting season has been recognized by his peers across Canada.

The Okanagan Sun running back, who shattered the team's single season rushing record, was named the Canadian Junior Football League's offensive player of the year.

The award was announced on video Friday morning on the eve of Saturday's national championship game between the host London Beefeaters and BCFC champion Langley Rams.

Miller led all running backs in the nation with a club record 1,367 yards.

His season was highlighted by a 39 carry, 325 yard effort against the VI Raiders.

Miller found the end zone 11 times on the ground, and added 110 yards and a touchdown through the air.

He beat out St. Clair Fratmen running back Jacob Savoni and Regina Thunder receiver Rylan Sokul for the award.

Miller is the first Sun player to be named the top offensive player in the nation since Jeff Halvorson in 2004.
