Harlan Miller prepared to make Southeastern proud at Senior Bowl

(WVUE) -

Two years ago, Southeastern cornerback Robert Alford made a name for himself at the Senior Bowl, and it propelled him to a second-round draft pick by the Atlanta Falcons. In 2016, Harlan Miller is following in his footsteps but looking to blaze his own trail.

The Kentwood High product played cornerback for the Lions and knows the difficult challenges ahead.

"Coming from a small school, you don't get the exposure that these guys do at big schools or anything like that since we don't play the competition, but I'm here, so it's a chance to prove myself. I'm going to be an exciting player to watch, I'm going to be flying around the field, making plays on the ball, just having fun out there," he said.

During his four-year career in Hammond, Miller intercepted 11 passes and defensed another 33.
