Miller Adds to Impressive Postseason Awards Haul.

MANSFIELD, Mass. – Saint Anselm's CJ Miller continues to reap the awards from his remarkable 2019 season, most recently earning a spot on the Division II Conference Commissioner's Association (D2CCA) All-America Second Team, as announced by the organization on Thursday.

Miller, crowned a First Team All-American by the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) as well as Northeast-10 Conference Defensive Player of the Year, led the Hawks in tackles (107), tackles per game (9.7), sacks (10.5) and tackles for a loss (14) this season.

The senior linebacker, who also received All-New England honors following the season's conclusion, helped lead the Hawks (4-7, 4-4 NE10) to their first three-game winning streak in five seasons – finishing just one victory shy of matching the team record for NE10 victories.

He recorded seven double-digit tackle games in the 2019 season, recording at least one sack in all but two games. Among active Division II student-athletes, Miller's 145 career assisted tackles stand as 19th-most in the nation and his 282 career total tackles place him in the top-25.

Overall, three NE10 football players earned All-America honors this season. Assumption's Quentin Hall joined Miller as an AFCA First Team selection, while Stonehill's Justin Felder was a Second Team pick.

The NE10 is an association of 14 diverse institutions serving student-athletes across 24 NCAA Division II sports. Together we build brilliant futures by embracing the journey of every student-athlete.

Each year, 4,500 of those student-athletes compete in conference championships in 24 sports, making the NE10 the largest DII conference in the country in terms of sport sponsorship. Leading the way in the classroom, on the field and within the community, the NE10 is proud of its comprehensive program and the experience it provides student-athletes.
