Miller, West Named Pepsi/SAAC Super Crusaders

Football and women’s cross country are represented as the Pepsi/SAAC Super Crusaders for the period ending Oct. 19. Senior defensive back Cody Miller (Towanda, Pa./Towanda) and junior runner Ashley West (East Hampton, N.Y./East Hampton) have been selected for the award.

Miller helped the Crusaders pick up their first win of the season in a 24-21 thriller over Moravian on Saturday, spoiling the Greyhounds' Homecoming. The defensive back recorded two interceptions, one fumble recovery, one pass breakup, and seven tackles (five solo). On Sunday, Miller was named the Centennial Conference Defensive Player of the Week for his performance.

He has appeared in all six games this season and has 43 tackles, tied for third most on the team. He also has two interceptions, four pass breakups, six passes defended, and one fumble recovery.

On Saturday, West helped pace SU to a third-place finish out of 30 teams at the Gettysburg Invitational. She finished the 6k course in 23:17.4, placing seventh overall in a field of 394 runners.

Miller and the football team remain on the road with a game at Ursinus on Saturday, Oct. 25, while West and the cross country teams host the Ashley Shell Tomlinson Alumni Run at Sassafras Field that same day.
