Miller played quarterback at Penn State from 1910–1913, missing only one game during his tenure and amassing a 23-8-2 record. His short stature (5' 5") and stubby legs earned him the nickname "The Meteoric Midget." Miller would go on to start all four seasons at Penn State, missing just one game. In 1913, he rushed for 250 yards against Carnegie Tech University — a Penn State single-game rushing record that lasted 68 years.
Miller was the last true freshman to start at quarterback and open a season for Penn State at that position, until Robert Bolden was selected by coach Joe Paterno to open the Nittany Lions 2010 season.
