former HCA student athlete who possessed the mark of Godliness. The “Living
Will” Award is selected by committee and given to an athlete who
demonstrates the following characteristics: hard working servant dedicated
to Christ first, others second; Christian values that stand strong and
true; respects spiritual authority and leadership; a leader for his peers;
a model of faith and humility; a bold Christian witness for the Lord, and
not ashamed to claim Him as Savior. Miller is pictured with his brother
