Chandler Miller has been a fixture on the Bixby offensive line. Right, left or center, Miller was there.

He finished his career at center, where he helped the Spartans to a six-win season and has now earned a spot on The Oklahoman's All State team.

“It's a huge honor,” Miller said about being named to the All-State team. “It's been a lifelong dream.”

Miller said despite going 6-4 and missing the playoffs, he was excited about how his senior season went.

“The competition is good for the college game,” Miller said. “That was the best Bixby has done since moving to Class 6A.”

Miller will play football for Tulsa next fall, a decision he made last summer.

“They have a lot of good pieces in place to be really good next year,” Miller said.

Miller added that offensive line coach Denver Johnson was a big factor in recruiting him.

“I don't care which position I play as long as I'm on the field,” Miller said. “I think that playing all three positions on the line helps make you a better player. You can see the plays better.”

Chandler head coach Loren Montgomery couldn't say enough about Miller, calling him a great leader and an ambassador to the Bixby program.
