Heath Miller Biography
Tight end for the Pittsburgh Steelers, Heath Miller was born October 22, 1982 in Richlands, Virginia. He was selected as the 30th overall pick of the 2005 NFL Draft out of the University of Virginia. Some consider him to be the greatest tight end in Atlantic Coast Conference history. Miller attended Honaker High School in Honaker, Virginia.
In his rookie season with the Pittsburgh Steelers, Heath Miller finished with 39 receptions for 459 yards and 6 touchdowns. He is also the second John Mackey Award recipient to win a Super Bowl. (The other is Daniel Graham of the New England Patriots.) During a four game stretch in his rookie season, he caught 5 touchdown passes and was considered a strong candidate for the Offensive Rookie of the Year award. Though he cooled off, he remained a solid contributor in the Steelers' 2005 Super Bowl run. Miller caught 3 passes for 61 yards and 1 touchdown in the Steelers 2118 upset win over top seeded Indianapolis Colts in the divisional playoff round.
In the Steelers opening game of the 2006 season, Miller caught 3 passes for 101 yards, including an 87-yard touchdown reception, the longest touchdown catch by a tight end in a regular season game since 1974. It was also the longest catch ever recorded in the Steelers home stadium, Heinz Field. Replays showed that he should have been marked out of bounds at about the 1 yard line, but the play was not challenged by Miami Dolphins coach Nick Saban quickly enough. Miller finished the season with 34 catches for 393 yards and 5 touchdowns.
In the 2007 Season, Miller set new career highs for touchdowns (7), receptions (47), and receiving yards (566). He benefited from new offensive coordinator Bruce Arians' system of offense which called for 3 tight ends, giving Miller more chances to catch passes. 2007 was the breakout year that most experts expected him to have after being under-utilized in his first two seasons. Miller is gaining recognition as one of the best tight ends in the league.
