Colby Miller

Colby Miller was a jack of all trades last Friday night.

The Vinemont senior played a huge part in the Eagles' 50-42 road victory against Susan Moore, accounting for five total touchdowns in a variety of ways.

On the ground, the speedster registered 183 yards and two touchdowns on 28 carries.

Through the air, he completed his only pass of the region outing — a 36-yard scoring strike to Isaac Moody.

Out wide, Miller also hauled in a pair of touchdown catches — 14 yards and 24 yards — from Rush Sandlin.

Oh, and he recorded five tackles and an interception on defense. Quite the performance.

Miller is The Times' Athlete of the Week.

He wasn't the only key contributor for the Eagles, either.

Brody Speer, who left the game with an injury, still racked up 103 yards and two touchdowns on 11 carries.

Athlete of the Week, which is sponsored by Mitch Smith Chevrolet, is open to any and all local athletes.

Nominations can be sent to with the person's name, school and statistics.
