Eight man: Davenport's Mike Miller, Matt Miller always close by on the field

— The dynamic Miller brothers of Davenport are about as familiar with one another as two teammates can be.

Mike Miller, the Bulldogs' senior running back, and Matt Miller, the team's junior quarterback, have been on sports teams together since they were little.

Matt always played with older teams and has always been his big brother's quarterback.

Last season, Mike rushed for 2,103 yards and 30 touchdowns, and Matt threw for 1,457 yards and 14 touchdowns, plus 470 yards and seven touchdowns rushing. The duo connected for three touchdowns through the air.

But their on-the-field bond goes beyond the offensive backfield.

The duo also starts together in the Bulldog secondary, where Mike, a safety, had 87 tackles and three interceptions and Matt, the left cornerback, had 73 tackles and five picks.

But wait, there's more.

The brothers also have the middle of the Bulldogs' infield covered on the baseball field, where Matt plays second base and Mike plays shortstop. Mike is the team's leadoff hitter; Matt bats second.

Duo they most resemble: Mike and Cale Gundy

The older brother loves OSU; the younger brother loves OU.

Davenport senior running back and safety Mike Miller is a Cowboys fan, and his younger brother, Bulldogs quarterback and corner Matt Miller, is a Sooners fan.

Mike Gundy played at Oklahoma State and now is the head coach there, and his younger brother Cale was a Sooner quarterback and now coaches the OU running backs.
