Mobile school has 09 two-sport star

In addition to quarterback AJ McCarron, Mobile (Ala.) Saint Paul has another Division I-A prospect for the Class of 2009 in safety Andrew Miller, who is also a Division I baseball prospect.
The 6-foot-1, 180-pounder talked about what has led him to the success he's had in both sports.
"I work hard during the offseason in the weight room," he said. "I work hard a lot during the summer trying to get better."
Miller talked about what he likes about playing safety.
"I love to hit people," he said. "I can help my team out coming up and making tackles and supporting the cornerbacks and reading the play."
It's not a done deal that Miller will get to hit people on a college football field. There is a chance that he could decide to stick with baseball or he could play both sports in college.
"I'm going to play both sports and see how it goes from there," he said. "I love baseball. I've played every since I was a little kid. I play center field and pitch. That's going to be a big part of where I go to college is where I can get a baseball scholarship."
There are three schools that Miller has an early interest in.
"I like Alabama, LSU and Mississippi State (for baseball)," he said.
Miller grew up a fan of the Crimson Tide.
"I like the way (Alabama head baseball coach) Jim Wells plays and I think (Tide head football coach) Nick Saban is going to turn (the football program) around," he said. "I love the atmosphere up there in Tuscaloosa."
Recently, Miller made an unofficial visit to LSU and was impressed with what he saw.
"I went to Baton Rouge a couple of weeks ago and fell in love with the campus and football stadium," he said.
