France: Flash De La Courneuve sign D1 QB Conor Miller

The Flash De La Courneuve of the French Elite have found their quarterback for the 2022 season signing Conor Miller. The former division one quarterback is thrilled to be heading to Paris after a long recruiting process:

“Once it was announced I wasn’t returning to Graz things got crazy and I was hearing from teams from all over; ELF, GFL, Finland, Austria, Italy, even Mexico. It was a little overwhelming but my team and I were able to narrow down the options to the ones where I was confident would fit everything I was looking for. It was hard to turn down some of the great organizations I was fortunate to speak with, but the opportunity to play for the Flash was something I couldn’t pass up. Between the legendary history of the organization, the current state, and the vision and plans for the future it was exactly what I was looking for. I can’t wait to get to started.”

The 6’5,” 210 pound signal-caller lead the Austrian Football League in passing last season throwing for 2,170 yards and 23 touchdowns during the eight-game regular season. Behind the decision-making of Miller, the Graz Giants made the postseason with the league’s second-highest scoring offense, averaging 29.4 points a game.

Prior to the 2021 season in Austria, Miller had a short stint in the German Football League with the Cologne Crocodiles. In four games in Germany, Miller threw for 718 yards and 6 touchdowns before suffering an AC sprain that effectively ended his season.

The South Florida native found his way to the international football scene after a whirlwind collegiate career that included two stops at different junior colleges before finishing his career in his home state as part of the Florida Atlantic Owls (NCAA D1 FBS). Following his time with the Owls, Miller worked out for the Buffalo Bills, Cleveland Browns, and Miami Dolphins but nothing materialized. After pursuing the CFL for a short time Miller found himself in Europe in 2019 as the starter for the Cologne Crocodiles.
