Mammoth Sign Rookie Jovan Miller
from press release
DENVER – The Colorado Mammoth announced Tuesday that the team has signed transition player Jovan Miller, the 47th overall selection in the 2011 NLL Entry Draft, to a two-year contract, pending league approval.
Miller led his hometown Syracuse Orange to two NCAA national championships in his four-year career. The first Syracuse lacrosse African-American to be named an All-American since Jim Brown in the late 1950s, Miller received the honor twice during his career. Named an All-BIG EAST First Team honoree in both his junior and senior seasons, he tallied 46 of his 64 career points in his final two years.
"Jovan is coming off a stellar collegiate career in which he consistently showcased his tremendous athleticism and versatility," said Mammoth president and general manager Steve Govett.
A star high school football player at Christian Brothers Academy in Syracuse, Miller earned All-State recognition as a running back and defensive back and was recruited by several Division I programs before turning his attention to lacrosse full-time.
The Colorado Mammoth opens the 2012 season against the Minnesota Swarm on "Brian Langtry Night" on Saturday, January 14th at 7pm MST on HealthONE Field at Pepsi Center. Season seats are on sale now and start at just $72. Reserve your seats today at ColoradoMammoth.com or by calling 303.405.1101.
