Cowboy Football Two-A-Days: #30 and #80

Aug. 2, 2012

Laramie, Wyo. -


Rich Miller
Strong Safety


A native of Lakewood, Colo., Rich Miller is known as one of the biggest hitting safeties in Cowboy football history. Miller lettered for years for head coaches Al Kincaid, Dennis Erickson and Paul Roach. He played on arguably two of the best teams in UW history in 1987 and '88. Miller helped lead the Pokes to a 10-3 record and a Holiday Bowl appearance in 1987. The following year, he led UW to an 11-2 record and its second-consecutive Holiday Bowl appearance. Adding to his reputation as a big hitter, during the 1988 season opener against BYU, Miller launched himself hitting a Cougar receiver that is known by the fans that saw it as one of the biggest hits ever in War Memorial Stadium.
