Braxton Miller Pens Heartfelt Letter To Ohio State Fans On Players' Tribune

Ohio State wide receiver Braxton Miller, one of the most accomplished players in school history, is off to the NFL. But as you'll read below, he certainly isn't leaving behind Buckeye nation.

Friday, Miller, via The Players' Tribune, penned an incredibly heartfelt letter titled "Dear Buckeye Nation" to Ohio State fans, thanking them for their support over the years. In the note, he explains his love for Ohio State, his shoulder injury, his recovery, his position change and how bittersweet it was to watch his teammates win a national title without him on the field. Here's an excerpt:

And I’m thankful for the Buckeye fans as well. I don’t know that there’s another organization or community that rallies around its own quite like ours does. Buckeye Nation: I was in awe of the unwavering loyalty you showed me, and the stream of well wishes you sent me, as I went through the rehab process. If I could have personally thanked each of you individually, I would have. But just know that none of your words of encouragement went unnoticed.

Miller will no doubt go down as one of the most beloved Buckeyes in school history. It'll be interesting to see how he adjusts to playing at the next level.
