Miller Named Centennial Conference Defensive Player of the Week

LANCASTER, Pa. – Susquehanna junior defensive back Cody Miller (Towanda, Pa./Towanda) has been named the Centennial Conference Defensive Player of the Week following his performance in SU's 27-17 Homecoming victory over conference opponent Moravian.

Miller picked off a Greyhounds pass and returned it 56 yards for a touchdown which, at the time, put the Crusaders (1-5, 1-4) ahead 20-3. Miller also had four tackles and a game-high four pass breakups. Miller and the Susquehanna defense held Moravian to 248 yards of total offense (versus the 353 by the Crusaders).

Through six games this season, Miller is tied for second on the team in total tackles with 39 (32 solo, 7 assisted) and leads the team with seven pass breakups and nine passes defended. He also has two interceptions and 1.5 tackles for loss.

SU remains at home to host Ursinus next Saturday, Oct. 26, for a 6 p.m. kickoff.
