Malakoff’s Judd Miller the ETSN.fm + Dairy Queen Offensive Player of the Week
The Malakoff Tigers have won 17 of their last 18 games, but that's not to say there haven't been any close calls along the way.
With their 15-game regular-season winning streak on the line, Malakoff found itself involved in a shootout with Tyler Grace last Friday night, and needed a big-time performance from its star quarterback.
Senior Judd Miller delivered by accounting for six touchdowns and posting 322 total yards of offense in the Tigers' thrilling 49-47 win. For his efforts, Miller is the ETSN.fm/Dairy Queen Offensive Player of the Week.
He follows last week's winner, Texas High quarterback Coltin Clack.
Malakoff, ranked No. 6 in the latest Associated Press Class 3A poll, improved to 3-0 thanks to Miller, who passed for 179 yards and three TD's on 16-of-20 completions and ran 18 times for 143 yards and three more scores.
Miller's 6-yard touchdown run -- his final score of the night -- put Malakoff on top 49-41 with a little more than three minutes remaining. Grace went down the field quickly and scored, but failed on the potential game-tying two-point conversion attempt.
Malakoff opens District 9-3A Division I play this Friday night at Whitney (3-0).
