Ohio State great Braxton Miller set to host football camp at Wayne HS

Braxton Miller plans to pay it forward next month with a football camp at his high school alma mater.

The Charging 1Way Youth Football Camp is scheduled for July 8 at Wayne High School in Huber Heights.

A press release for the event says “a slew of special guests” including “other decorated players from Ohio State and the NFL” are also set to participate.

“It always meant a lot when guys would come back to Ohio,” Miller said. “That made the camp a no brainer for me. 937 is my home.”

Miller was a five-star recruit at Wayne and led the Warriors to the Division I state championship game in 2010, his senior year.

He went on to start at Ohio State, spending three seasons as the Buckeyes’ quarterback and another at receiver.

He accounted for 88 touchdowns for the Scarlet and Gray and was twice named the Chicago Tribune Silver Football winner as the Big Ten’s most valuable player.
