Miller Contributes $50,000 to West Zone Initiative

Nov. 4, 2006

Clemson, SC – New York Jets cornerback Justin Miller contributed $50,000 to his alma mater’s WestZone initiative on Saturday. The check presentation was made in between the first and second periods of Clemson’s game with Maryland.

Miller’s mother, Mrs. Donna Bowman, was on hand to present the check to Clemson Assistant Athletic Director Jeff Davis.

Miller is in his second season with the New York Jets. A starting cornerback, he has 39 tackles in eight games. He is currently second in the NFL in kickoff return with a 29.7 average and has two returns for touchdowns, the only NFL player with two kickoff returns for scores this year. He was named the AFC Special Teams Player of the Month for October.

Miller’s success is of no surprise to Clemson ranks. During his Clemson career (2002-04) Miller averaged 30.7 yards per kickoff returns, the best average in ACC history and fourth in NCAA history. He had two kickoff returns for touchdowns against Florida State in 2004 when he set an NCAA record with 282 kickoff return yards.

Miller was a three year starter in the secondary for the Tigers between 2002-04. He was a freshman All-American in 2002 when he had eight interceptions to tie a Clemson record. His 13 career interceptions rank third in Clemson history on a career basis. He was a second-round draft choice of the Jets in 2005 as he turned professional after his junior year.
