Nicholas K. Miller (born c. 1959) was the Defensive MVP of the 1981 Liberty Bowl, for the Ohio State Buckeyes. As a middle guard, Miller was also voted "Most Inspirational" player, by his teammates in 1981, in addition to his outstanding performance in the Bowl game against Navy. Miller had several sacks throughout the game, giving Navy's offensive line a very difficult time. In Navy's second possession of the game, Miller forced a fumble, recovered by Ohio State.
Miller was recruited to play for O.S.U. from Saint James High School, in Chester, Pennsylvania, while residing with his parents (Shirley & Judge Kenneth Miller) and his four brothers. Recruited by Woody Hayes in 1977, Nic moved to Columbus, Ohio to begin his football career after turning down scholarships from Boston College, Miami University and Maryland University.
In 2001, Miller was inducted into the Delaware County (PA) Hall of Fame. After graduating from OSU, Miller began a successful career in pharmaceutical sales in central Ohio, where he resides today, happily married to Stephanie Miller, with three daughters.
