Miller receives soccer scholarship from St. Andrews UniversityPublished 4:14pm Wednesday, February 6, 2013
Charles said St. Andrews will get a confident athlete out of Emily. One especially, who is not selfish with the ball and is happy to create assists as much as she is to grab her own goals.
“Her skills on the ball constantly improve – her dribbling and shooting – which will allow her to rely more on speed at the college level,” he said.
Athletic director Jeff Wilson said St. Andrews must really have seen something special in Emily when she practiced with the team.
“It’s the second biggest scholarship I’ve seen a female athlete from Polk County receive in my time here,” Wilson said.
He said as far as he remembers only softball player Jamie Hrobak has received a larger scholarship package.
Miller’s parents said they are proud that she has also received an academic scholarship from the university to help with college expenses.
