Brighton’s Brock Miller a key component in team’s success

OGDEN — There’s more than just one Miller helping Brighton in its quest to return to the 5A state championship. Most people know of Utah Ute signee Brandon Miller and his great play over the years, but another Miller has stepped as a sophomore — providing a spark of the bench for the Bengals.

Brock Miller is a 6-foot-4 combo guard who scored eight points while providing key play on both ends of the court.

“Brock was fantastic,” said Brighton coach Jeff Gardner. “He’s a great player and what’s made him great is his efficiency. Tonight he took really good care of the ball and made some shots when he was open and played great defense for us.”

As a sophomore it’s hard not to draw comparisons with Brock and Brandon. Brandon is proven as a great player and Brock appears to be well on his way.

“Brock is a bit bigger and has a little more quickness and a little more bounce,” Gardner said. “Brandon shoots the ball better at this stage. I’d hate to be compared to Brandon because he’s such a great player, but Brock is going to be a great player.”

Brandon believes his brother has the potential to be better than him and his older brother, Corbin, by the time he’s a senior.

“Brock is going to be a good player,” he said. “He’s 6-4 and a half and he’s still growing. He has a chance to be the best of all of us brothers. He’s a very good player — very head strong, very skilled and very good.”
