Ohio State’s quarterback-turned-receiver Braxton Miller is being watched closely this season, by fans, NFL scouts, coaches, and also by a drone that has become his near constant companion.
Ohio State’s quarterback-turned-receiver Braxton Miller is being watched closely this season, by fans, NFL scouts, coaches, and also by a video drone.
When Miller pulled up to the team’s fall camp on Sunday, the floating camera was just hovering above him as he got his bags out of the trunk.
According to Eleven Warriors, the drone is part of a documentary dreamed up by two of Miller's friends and fellow Ohio State students, Korey Faulks and Regis Williams, to tell the story of Miller’s final year as a Buckeye.
"This is an idea that me and my friend Regis came up for him for his return to football. It’s new and in the workings," Faulks said. "We’re capturing a lot of footage and start putting it together."
The pair spent $1,800 on the flying camera as well as an iPad, memory card and other gear for their movie, and are hopeful the team will grant it access to in-season practices, and even a few games.
