Born and raised in Springfield, Ohio, Braxton Miller attended Wayne High School in Ohio where he excelled in football and basketball. After four years of exceptional play, he was an Under Armour All-American, First Team All State, and was named an Ohio Mr. Football Finalist.
Raised only 40 minutes away from The Horseshoe, Braxton went on to fulfill his childhood dream of suiting up in that scarlet and gray uniform for the Buckeyes, becoming one of the most decorated athletes in OSU history and earning more Big Ten Conference awards–seven–than any player in Big Ten history. Off the field, Braxton is a dedicated father to his four-year old son Landon, frequently flying from Ohio and Houston to spend as much time with him.
BIG TEN LEGEND
As a sophomore, Braxton passed for 2,039 yards and 15 passing touchdowns with 1,271 rushing yards and 13 touchdowns. His play led the Buckeyes to an undefeated 12-0 record and Braxton was named Big Ten MVP. The following season he was once again named Big Ten MVP.
