Shawn Moore, Miller get first win with new philosophy

Miller got its first win of the season under new coach Shawn Moore last week, a 42-15 rout of Moreno Valley Vista Del Lago.
“I think it was a good all-around win. We did a lot of things well,” Moore said.
Miller looks a little different on offense this year, even with senior star athlete/quarterback Malik Flowers returning from Justin Nast’s team last year.
Moore has chosen to play Flowers at receiver and running back, instead of quarterback, because that’s where Flowers will more than likely play in college. He doesn’t want to hinder Flowers’ recruitment by playing him at another position.
How has that worked?
In Miller’s opener, Flowers caught four passes for 111 yards and two touchdowns in a 36-15 loss to Perris. Last week, he rushed for 227 yards and three touchdowns.
But Moore says another running back, senior Kenny Thompson is also a standout talent.
“He’s a guy hardly anyone knows about,” Moore said.
