The Ogden Mustangs congratulate Bryce Miller on his commitment to the University of Utah.
Miller had been eyeing the Utes while playing as a star forward for the Ogden Mustangs.
He is excited to be staying local in Utah for college. “Utah is a really nice school, beautiful campus, and I know the coaches from my time playing in Ogden. I’d been thinking of playing there for the last couple of years and it seems like a good fit.” he says.
Coach Orlando had been scouting Miller since back from his time coaching with the Austin Bruins of the NAHL. Orlando states, “Bryce is both a respectful person and responsible hockey player. He thrived off of us holding him accountable and expecting more every day. He’s a player who embraces a challenge. He will have a very successful college hockey career.”
Miller benefitted from the coaching style of the staff. “Kenny always held me accountable for the small details of the game, which ended up rounding out my game as a player. He and Nick helped me in developing my penalty killing skills as well as my offensive skills set.”
The Weber County Sports Complex was a trusted ground for development for Bryce and the Ogden Mustangs fans were his inspiration. “They’re amazing. You’ll be shocked being there for your first game. The whole facility is amazing, it’s such a fun place to play at.” he says, enthusiastically.
Over his two seasons in Ogden, Miller contributed 16 goals and 22 assists in 82 regular season games. He was a consistent lineup player who added IQ and a spectacular skills set to the forward group.
When asked what he would tell a younger player hoping to become an Ogden Mustang, Bryce is direct. “Work hard everyday whether that be at home, on the ice, or on roller blades. I’m a hard worker and I’ll do anything to win for my team. That mindset helped me find success in Ogden” he states.
This fall, Bryce Miller begins his journey toward a Bachelor’s Degree in Science & Engineering from the University of Utah.
