    ROCKPORT – Gant Miller has a big decision coming up and he’s still undecided.

    Miller, a 2016 Tell City graduate and three-sport athlete for the Marksmen, is currently enrolled to begin classes next month at Western Kentucky University. However, there’s an opportunity for him to continue his baseball career elsewhere.

    As a senior, Miller batted .315 in 23 games. He finished with 16 RBIs, 16 runs scored and finished his high school career with a .345 batting average.

    A team wins the NBA title one year and wins a league-record 73 games the next season and makes it back to the playoff finals but falls just short in a seven-game series.

    That scenario may sound implausible, but that is exactly what the Golden State Warriors did in acquiring Kevin Durant this week.

    Through the years a number of future star professional athletes have played against Perry County high school teams.
    They include Major League baseball stars Don Mattingly, Andy Benes and Scott Rolen, pro basketball stars Roger Kaiser, Jeff Mullins, Calbert Cheaney and Walter McCarty, and pro football stars Kevin Hardy and Deke Cooper, though Hardy did so in basketball and Cooper did so in track.
    But very few future Olympic athletes have competed against Perry County teams.
