Germany: Veteran QB Connor Miller signs with the Schwäbisch Hall Unicorns

The Schwäbisch Hall Unicorns have found their quarterback for the 2024 season in veteran American passer Conor Miller. The Unicorns are fresh off of a second place finish in the German Football League last year and and looking to rebuild this off-season and make another run at the German Bowl title.

The 6’5 28-year old veteran quarterback most recently played for the Barcelona Dragons of the European League of Football last season throwing for 2,482 yards and 18 touchdowns in 10 games for the Dragons.

Miller has championship experience after winning the French title with the La Courneuve Flash in 2022. In leading the Flash to their first French crown since 2018, Miller threw for 1,422 yards and 18 touchdowns during the regular season.

Following the French championship, Miller played a three game stint with the Leipzig Kings, throwing for 545 yards in the three games while tossing five touchdown passes.

Back in 2021, he led the Austrian Football League in passing 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 six 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.
