This season Dallas County sophomore Rafel Miller proved he has a penchant for making the buzzer-beater on the hardwood.

Tuesday night in the Hornets’ Green and White game, Miller showed his talent for late-game heroics isn’t limited to roundball.

With no time on the clock, Miller caught the game-tying touchdown pass from Derrick McGhee.

Then McGhee ran in the conversion and the Green team stole a 16-14 win.

“We’re excited about the effort of our young guys,” Dallas County coach Rick Bush said. “We’re proud of all the kids.

Their attitudes have been great all spring.”

With 29 new players on the roster, the Hornets will look a lot different next season.

But some old hands like Michael Johnson and Dalton Anthony were around to teach the young bucks how it’s done.

“We’ve still got a few guys left that will hit you,” Bush said.

Maybe most importantly, the Hornets came out of the game healthy and ready to get into summer work.

“Everybody came out healthy,” Bush said.
