Miller-Johnston is among the new inductees to Concordia’s Sports Hall of Fame on September 24. Established in 1995, the Sports Hall of Fame recognizes athletes, teams and builders who have made outstanding contributions to sports at Concordia and its founding institutions, Loyola College and Sir George Williams University.
“This will be one of those special moments in life that I'm going to be very careful not to rush through because this only happens once,” says Miller-Johnston. “What I’m really looking forward to is saying thanks to my teammates, my coaches and my family for helping me succeed.”
Miller-Johnston will be honoured for his athletic contributions to the Stingers from 1993 to 1998. His career highlights include twice winning the Dunsmore Cup, as well as the Atlantic Bowl victory that led Concordia to its first-ever football national championship.
