WARSAW – A pair of River View High School seniors will both continue their athletic careers at Tiffin University.

Corey Miller and Trevis Stamper Jr. posed for pictures with family, coaches and school administrators May 12 to celebrate them signing with the university. Miller is the son of Dianne and Chad Miller and Trevis is the son of Trevis Sr. and Terri Stamper

“I feel relaxed and now I can focus on finishing my season at River View,” Corey said.

He plans to major in athletic administration and run cross country and distance events for the track team while at Tiffin.

“I liked their resources there,” Corey said. “You have to have an internship with most majors to graduate and that gives you an extra push with jobs.”

He also liked the new indoor facility that was recently built and the coaches.

“I enjoyed talking to the coaches and I think I can be on the teams and be successful,” Corey said.

He did cross country for three years and track for all four of his high school years.

“With both sports you have a sense of team and individual success,” Corey said.

His favorite memories from the sports involve experiences at the state level.

“I ran at the state cross country meet my sophomore year,” Corey said. “It was a great experience and opened my mind to running and what it’s like to be at the top. I didn’t qualify for state in track my sophomore year, but I got to go watch a friend compete and see what it takes to get there. It was awesome. There are thousands of people that come and watch.”

Both his teammates and coaches have played a big role in his success.

“They’ve pushed me and made me work harder,” Corey said.

His mom and dad are also both very proud of him.

“It’s been a long process deciding, but it seems like he is going somewhere he is going to be happy and that’s important,” Chad said.

Dianne is excited for Corey, but also a little sad.

“I’m very proud of him, but I will miss him,” she said. “It’s going to be a new experience for us.”

Corey, however, will also have Trevis on campus and on the track with him.

Trevis is a hurdler for River View and plans to take those same skills to Tiffin as a member of its track team.

“Hurdling is fun and so was going to state last year,” he said.

Picking Tiffin was a pretty easy decision for Trevis.

“My mind didn’t change too much while I was looking,” Trevis said. “Tiffin really stayed number one all the way through. They have a nice (track) facility and the coaches were really helpful. The whole place just gave me a good vibe.”

He also liked their criminal justice program, which is what he plans to major in, but first he has to finish his high school track career.

“I have to thank Cyrus Granger for sure,” Trevis said. “Before he came here I was just a mediocre hurdler, but after he started coaching here he really unlocked my potential.”
