Subway Scholar Athlete - Jesse Miller

Red Bluff standout basketball player scores Scholar Athlete honor

Posted: Jan 11, 2018 11:59 PM

Local basketball fans may remember the name Angie Miller. She helped the Spartans win a state championship in 1987 and became the school's all-time leading scorer before continuing her career collegiately at Washington State. But now, as Action News Now's Ross Field reports, Angie's daughter Jesse is making quite a name for herself in Spartan territory. Jesse is this week's Subway Scholar Athlete. 

On Tuesday, Jesse Miller scored 26 points in a win over Paradise, but it's what she did from beyond the arc that really stands out. Miller tied the school's single-game record with eight three-pointers.

"After the game I was like 'wow, I really just did that,' and then I was like, 'you know what? I just want to break the record.' So, I'm just going to keep working hard and try maybe next year or closer to the end of this season to just break it," says Miller.

And we wouldn't put it past her.

Miller is consistent as she averages 16.5 points and 11.3 rebounds per game, stuffing the stat sheet every time out.

Her coach Shelby Long says it's her basketball IQ that sets her apart.

"She knows what's going to happen when it's going to happen and if she gets moving, she can take that steal and get whatever she needs. She knows that, she knows when she's open she's going to take that shot. The other night she knew where to cut to get those open shots, it's crazy to watch her do that. She just knows when to do something," says Long.

Jesse knows what to do in the classroom as well. She has a 4.43 GPA while taking multiple Advanced Placement courses. The junior is interested in a career in Criminal Justice, perhaps following in the footsteps of her father who was a police officer.

"That would be cool to be able to solve murders and when I hear about people who have been killed, figuring out who did that and getting justice for the family would be pretty fun to have as a job," said Miller.

Solving crimes and scoring baskets! She's Jesse Miller from Red Bluff High, our latest Subway Scholar Athlete of the Week.
