HANOVER, N.H. — Dartmouth safety Charlie Miller was named to the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) Academic All-District I Football Team for Division I schools as announced today by the organization. The Big Green have had at least one player earn a spot on the squad in each of the past nine seasons.

A 6-0, 190-pound senior from Shoreview, Minnesota, Miller is one of the key players on a defensive unit that leads the Ivy League in fewest points allowed. He is tied for the team lead with six passes defended, one of which was an interception during a 20-17 victory over Towson on Oct. 15. It was his block of a 22-yard field goal attempt in the fourth quarter that helped secure the victory against the Tigers as well. Miller has 31 tackles on the year, fifth-most on the team, despite missing a game due to an injury early in the season. He is also the Big Green punt returner and has garnered interest from NFL scouts thanks to his 4.4 speed in the 40-yard dash.

A total of 12 players named to an all-district team hail from the Ivy League, with five coming from Cornell, two from Columbia, two more from Penn, and one each from Brown, Dartmouth and Harvard.

The members of the various all-district teams will now go on the ballot for Academic All-America honors, which will be announced on Thursday, Dec. 1.
