DOYLESTOWN (PA) – Delaware Valley University senior safety Shawn Miller’s (Laurel, DE/Laurel) dream of playing in the NFL took a step forward on Sunday as he received an invitation to the Cincinnati Bengals’ rookie mini-camp.

Miller will head to Ohio on May 10 with camp beginning the next day.

Miller had a career to remember with the Aggies which was capped by a 2017 season in which he helped lead the team to a perfect regular season, a Middle Atlantic Conference (MAC) Championship and a run to the NCAA Division III quarterfinals.

Miller was named an All-American by both D3football.com and the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) earlier in the week. He was a first-team, all-region pick by D3football.com (second all-region honor of his career) and was an all-MAC first team choice for the third year in a row.  Miller was also a Cliff Harris Award finalist for the top defensive player in the country.

Miller led a DelVal defense that finished fourth in Division III in scoring as the unit allowed just 10.5 points per game. The team was also fourth in defensive touchdowns with six and Miller had two of them on interceptions, including one in the conference-clinching win over Widener University. He had six picks on the year and returned them for 172 yards. He was also second on the team in tackles with 80, including 60 solo stops.

For his career, Miller finished second in school history with 16 interceptions. He is the all-time leader in both interception yards (444) and interceptions for touchdowns (3), and also owns a share of the mark for the longest interception in school history as he had a 100-yard return against Stevenson University in 2015.
