At least one former Wyoming quarterback found a new school this week. Emory Miller Jr. left the program in June due to personal reasons after being named a co-starter coming out of spring practice. It is believed that Miller left due to a serious illness in his family and needed to be closer to home. He is now enrolled at FCS school Sam Houston State in Huntsville, TX which is just three hours from his home in Mesquite, TX.
He will also have an opportunity to battle for the starting job for the BearKats. The other competitor is sophomore Brian Bell who started 10 games and threw for 1,381 yards. He passed for seven touchdowns and had four throws intercepted.
Sam Houston State is a member of the Southland Conference which is losing three of it's members to the WAC in 2012. My wife could never root for the BearKats because she hates when the letter K is used instead of C. Best of luck to Emory this year and hope he has success at Sam Houston State.
