Haven’s D.J. Miller – “Driving Change” Athlete Spotlight Presented By KTA

By Matt Browning

While it is important for D.J. Miller of Haven to have a solid individual season, those numbers will not mean anything unless the Wildcats have a successful season.

“For me, just going out there and being the best version of myself on the field and competing my hardest every time I’m out there is a successful season,” Miller said. “Whatever numbers I put up or honors I receive, it is what it is, I just want to give our team the best chance to win. For our team, we have a good chance to be one of the top teams in our league, I don’t know who’s in our regional yet but I like our chances, and I think we have a chance to make some noise at the state tournament.”

Throughout the fall and winter, Miller worked with his head coach, Noah Krol, about developing as a pitcher.

“I wanted to become more consistent as a pitcher,” Miller said. “I talked to coach Krol about things to do, threw bullpens over the offseason, and did long toss with some teammates. I wanted to improve myself by getting in the weight room more.”

The expectation for Miller and the Wildcats is to be a state tournament-contending team again. Last season, Haven fell in the sub-state finals and finished 18-4.

“I’m looking forward to having a lot of fun and winning a lot of games,” Miller said. “We have a really good team and great coaches, I’m just excited to see what we can achieve together. I love the game and competing with my brothers on the field.”
