Quiet Leader Miller Putting Together Career Year

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Ben Roethlisberger stopped by Heath Miller’s locker and decided it was time to throw his tight end’s hat into the political ring.

The Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback said with a laugh, “Forget Pro Bowl, I’m going to make him president of the United States.”

Forgive Roethlisberger for his exuberance, and never mind that at age 30 Miller is still too young to run for the White House. Considering the way Miller has quietly and responsibly carried himself through his steady eight-year career, it’s no wonder Roethlisberger wouldn’t mind having his good friend running the country.

Even in the midst of perhaps his finest season, Miller just seems happy to do his part for a 3-3 team still searching for a rhythm heading into Sunday’s game against Washington (3-4).
