2017 Draft Profile - Ben Miller

 
With the 2017 AFL Draft six sleeps away, this coming Friday November 24th, the top Subiaco contenders for the draft will be provided each day leading up to the draft.
 
 
The mining town of Kalgoorlie has been used to an explosion or two, but next year it could be the explosiveness of key position prospect and local Kalgoorlie footballer Ben Miller that makes an explosion at AFL level.
 
Miller started his senior football career at the age of just 15 for local Kalgoorlie team, Railways, a club that has produced many outstanding football players, including Dean Kemp, Steve Marsh and Jim Gosnell.
 
Miller first came across recruiters’ minds when he was selected in the WA State U16s Academy in 2015 and further enhanced his reputation when he made his debut for the Subiaco Colts in round one of the 2016 season.
 
It is his 2017 season though that has left its most tantalising mark on recruiters’ minds. A dominant start to the WAFL Colts season saw Miller become the most dominant big man in WAFL Colts football in 2017, leading to selection in the WA Under 18s.
 
At the championships Miller showed his incredible athleticism as he won the most hit-outs for WA, laid the fourth most tackles, won the fifth most clearances and ranked seventh for contested possessions
 
Following the under 18s, Miller continued to juggle school commitments back in Kalgoorlie as well as playing football both locally and with the Subiaco colts. He was dominant in his final two WAFL colts games, while was named the best player in the finals of the Goldfields Football League.
 
Miller’s last competitive match came in the Goldfields Football League Grand Final, incredible to think that fast forward six months and Miller could be playing on the biggest stage in the land.
 
The NAB AFL Draft is on Friday November 24th. Keep an eye on Subiaco’s social media accounts to find out where all the Subiaco prospects land.
 
WHAT THE COACH SAYS:
Ben’s development throughout 2017 has been huge. Extremely dedicated, managing travel commitments living in Kalgoorlie and often training in isolation.  Shows great athleticism for a big man, his ruck work was improved giving great service to his team mates. Ben showed he has the ability to turn a game with his goal sense and overhead marking. A confident young man with great character and care for his peers.
 
WHAT THE TALENT MANAGER SAYS:
Ben showed great commitment this year with his commute from Kalgoorlie to Perth for training and games. For his age and size, we think Ben is an elite prospect for the next level, who can really grow into a premier big man. Great skills and great athleticism for his size, he has the tools to make an impact at the next level.
 
WHAT THE SCOUT SAYS:
For a player of 196 centimetres, Miller is explosive, agile, clean and consistent , traits that make him such a tantalising prospect. At the AFL National Combine, he came first in the Goalkicking test and the Agility test while also coming third in the 20-metre sprint. Miller has been playing senior football since the age of 15 in Kalgoorlie, hence he is ready to match it with the ruckmen in the AFL from round one.
 
WHAT BEN SAYS:
I’d like to hope I’m still growing. It would be good to get a little bit bigger, but if I don’t, it’s no biggy. I’m at a pretty good size now and reckon I will have the experience to make an impact next year wherever I play.
