Braxton Miller was a national star for three seasons at Ohio State, finishing fifth in Heisman Trophy balloting and winning the Big Ten’s Silver Football as both a freshman and a sophomore before a shoulder injury ended his career. He spent two years on an active NFL roster with the Houston Texans and another couple of years bouncing around practice squads with Philadelphia Eagles, Cleveland Browns and Carolina Panthers before calling it a career.
Now he spends his time in Dublin, Ohio, raising an 8-year-old son and growing his business, which includes a flag football league and AAU basketball program. He’s also part of a group that hopes to purchase the former campus of Urbana University and convert it into a prep school, much like IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida.
Miller’s business is doing well, but he hasn’t given up on the dream of making his mark in professional sports. He recently signed with the Panthers’ practice squad, and he’ll be looking to make an impression in the next few weeks before the team cuts its final roster.
Miller’s CHARG1NG football camp returned to his old stomping grounds at Wayne High School in Huber Heights this weekend, and it was sold out. He’s expanded the camps to two locations this year, and he’s joined by some of his former teammates and current Buckeye stars.
