CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Friday on The Players' Tribune, Ohio State wide receiver Braxton Miller wrote a letter to Ohio State and their fans. In the letter Miller thanks fans and discusses the injury he suffered in 2014.
"It's difficult to describe the feelings I had while watching my boys win it all last season. On one hand, it was so gratifying. We were a dominant football team, and we were able to assert our will against any opponent. Everything I'd envisioned for us, as a program, it finally came true — except for one small part. I wasn't on the field," Miller wrote.
"Of course, while I was hurt and J.T. and Cardale found success, everyone began speculating that I was going to transfer. But if you want to know the truth: that thought never really crossed my mind. In my mind, it all came down to one question. Why would I ever leave Ohio State? Want to know what's funny? That whole time, while people were speculating about what school I was going to transfer to, J.T. and Cardale were working out with me. They were throwing me balls, and I was catching them. Early in the morning, and then again at night: we worked hard, and we worked together — as they learned to be better quarterbacks, and as I learned my new position at wide receiver."
Miller finished the letter by thanking the Buckeye faithful.
"From the bottom of my heart, I want to thank every Buckeye fan who took the time to watch me play the game that I love. I lived for those moments that we all experienced together, and I'll always feel a special connection to you. And that's because I'm one of you."
