Southeast Missouri State senior safety Mike Miller has been named to the Division I-AA Athletics Directors Association Academic All-Star Team.

Miller, a four-year contributor at Southeast, led the Redhawks in tackles this year with 88, including 5.5 tackles for losses. He also had one interception and blocked a kick.

Miller, majoring in business administration, has a 3.3 cumulative grade point average.

The 44 honorees on the eighth annual Academic All-Star Team were announced earlier this by the Division I-AA Athletics Directors Association. There are 102 nominees.

"We are proud of the young men who have earned this award," said Southeast athletic director Don Kaverman, the chair of the Division I-AA Athletic Directors Association Academic All-Star Team Selection Committee. "They represent the outstanding students-athletes found in Division I-AA football."

Each of the 102 nominees was required to have a minimum grade point average of 3.20 (on a 4.00 scale) in undergraduate study and have been a starter or key player with legitimate athletics credentials.
