    Miller, who was a pitcher in 2007 on SFA's first-ever Southland Conference Tournament team, is in his second season as a volunteer assistant coach.

    The 6'10" right-hander was chosen by the Houston Astros in the 32nd round of the 2007 Major League Draft after his junior season at SFA. Miller was featured on the MILB web site on June 21, 2008 for being the winning pitcher for the Tri City Valley Cats in a no-hitter vs. the Oneonta Tigers. He also pitched in the Toronto Blue Jays and Florida Marlins organizations.

    Miller pitched for the Gateway Grizzlies of the Frontier League in 2010, holding opponents to a .201 batting average, with a 2.91 ERA. He also played for the Melbourne Aces in the Australian League during the winter of 2010-2011, while his last pro stop was with the Wichita Wingnuts of the American Association. After a shoulder injury, he returned to SFA to finish his degree where he graduated in May of 2012 with a Bachelor of Science in kinesiology. He is currently working toward a master's degree at SFA.

    Miller played two seasons at SFA where he made 33 appearances in 2006 and 2007, striking out 43 hitters in 51.2 innings. During his summers he was chosen to play in the Texas Collegiate League for the McKinney Marshals' first TCL championship team in 2006, and the Graham Roughnecks in 2004. In 2005 he played for the Fairbanks Fire in the Alaska League, while also playing part of the 2006 summer for the Kenai Peninsula Oilers.

    David played high school baseball for Brewer High School in Fort Worth, where he was a two-time all-district player and academic all-state selection, as a pitcher and a first baseman.
