In a race that garnered more than 27,782 votes, Tri-Valley’s Kole Miller jumped out to a big lead and never looked back. The senior quarterback’s faithful pumped in a whopping 15,476 votes to top the 10,178 votes secured by Williams Valley’s Brady Evans.
In it up to their necks with a determined Line Mountain side, Miller used his arm and his legs to bring the Bulldogs back and ultimately prevail 35-28 over their former Twin Valley Conference rivals. Miller completed just 6 of his 21 throws – he was picked off once – but amassed 194 yards through the air. His 2 touchdown passes covered 28 and 20 yards to Jolten Flory as Tri-Valley (3-0) pulled to within seven (21-14) at halftime. With the ‘Dawgs down 28-14 entering the fourth quarter, Miller (9 carries, 69 yards) wheeled for scores of 15 and 23 yards to pull Jeff Sampson’s club even midway through the fourth.
