One of the most active people running around the College’s athletic fields during the summer isn’t a competitor, but a busy Athletics Department staff member who is relied on for a little bit of everything. Larry Miller ’11 has served as the assistant director of summer sports camps for the past several weeks, juggling many of the day-to-day duties that involve young athletes training on campus. And during New York Jets Training Camp, it’s not uncommon he's hanging banners or executing behind-the-scenes work. With any job tied to athletics, there’s a good chance Larry does it — and does it well.
