Braxton Miller got emotional after win over Virginia Tech

Braxton Miller has had a long hard road to getting back on the field for the Ohio State Buckeyes. Before the 2014 season even began, he injured his shoulder, which forced him to miss entire year in what was supposed to be a Heisman-like year for the junior.

He finally returned to the field for the Buckeyes after year of recovery and a position change. He had an absolutely phenomenal showing in his first game back. According to reports, Miller broke down following his terrific two-touchdown performance.

You first have to recognize what exactly he did for his team last night. It was pretty crazy. First he showed that he can play receiver as he scored on a 50-plus yard catch and run.

Then he took his spot in the quarterback position and “hit the B button” on his way to another 50-plus yard touchdown run.

Your ankles, sir…

Needless to say, Miller was pretty happy to be back on the field for the Buckeyes.

Urban says Braxton Miller was very emotional post game. "I'm honored to coach him."

Urban Meyer: "I would like to say this. I love Braxton Miller. … He broke down in there and got real emotional."

Good to see that Miller never lost his passion for the game. It’s also good to see that he picked up right where he left off on his journey to the Heisman Trophy.
