Northport's Andrew Miller has a long list of lacrosse accolades, but none may mean more than being named the Lt. Ray Enners Award honoree as the top player in Suffolk County. The West Point-bound long stick midfielder (LSM) shares the Army connection with Enners, a Long Island hero who died on the battlefield in Vietnam.

Miller, a two-time All-American and two-time Suffolk County LSM of the Year, had 77 points in his varsity career (53 goals, 25 assists) and is the first Northport player since Chris Theofield in 1991 to earn the honor.

We caught up with Miller on the meaning of the award, leadership, and his future.

What does it mean for you to win the Enners Award?
"Receiving the Raymond Enners Award has been a great personal experience. Not because of the individual accolade but because it inspired me to really learn who Ray Enners was. Being mentioned in the same sentence as Ray Enners is a great honor. His accomplishments in the class, on the field and in battle inspire me to live my life as Mr. Enners did each and every day."

What does the Enners Award mean to you?
It is an incredible honor to be recognized as the next in line to represent Lt. Enners through this award. Prior to receiving this award, I knew his story and how impactful he was. To be attending West Point just as Lt. Enners had is surreal, and I am really grateful to be recognized in such a way.

Describe yourself as a leader.
I like to do my best to lead by example by providing an optimistic and confident front for others to work with me.

How would your teammates describe you?
I hope my teammates describe me as a positive role model and an extremely driven/motivated individual.

How important is the purpose of team and program culture to you?
I take team and program culture seriously because, as a team, you represent your community. With many people behind you supporting your team, a strong, good team culture is necessary in my eyes.

Best moment of your career so far?
I would like to say the best moment of my career was winning my last game as a sophomore in 2021. I learned so much from the seniors, and those moments growing up really propelled my high school career and pushed me to where I am today.

Describe what it means to play at Northport.
Northport is a lacrosse town with immense history and great culture around the sport. It is the greatest honor to captain such a big team and have fun with my teammates on such a big stage for my community.

College goals?
I hope to make connections at the Academy that will last a lifetime and bring home a championship to West Point on the lacrosse field.

Career goals?
I would love to pursue a career in medicine or engineering out of West Point while gaining the best possible leadership and character development.
