Cumberland Head Coach Keith Gorman on Miles

"I am so proud of Mike for all that he accomplished on the field this season.  Maybe more than what he did on the field, I am more impressed with the way he led us in practice and off the field - a true extension of the coaching staff. A 12-0 record, Region XIX Pitcher of the Year, World Series MVP, 1st Team All American and now our first-ever National Pitcher of the Year... Wow!  We have had some good arms around here but he has to be right up there at the top of the list."
