Henry John "Heinie" Miller (January 1, 1893 – June 9, 1964) was a professional football player who played in the early years of the National Football League (NFL). He played in the NFL for the Buffalo All-Americans and the Milwaukee Badgers. However, he also played outside of the NFL for the Union Club of Phoenixville, and its later incarnation, the Union Athletic Association of Philadelphia. He was also a player-coach for the Frankford Yellow Jackets, prior to that team's NFL membership in 1926. Before playing pro football, Miller played college football for the University of Pennsylvania. While playing for the Penn Quakers football team, he was a consensus first-team All-American in both 1917 and 1919.[1]

Miller died at the age of 71 at his home in Longport, New Jersey.[2]
