ASU Football Season In Review Series: Breakout Player Of The Year

Sure, Gerell Robinson was the player of the year for ASU in 2011, Cameron Marshall had the best play, and ASU's big win over USC was the game of the year. But who was the breakout star for the Sun Devils?

The answer is none other than Jamal Miles. After losing Deantre Lewis for the season in a freak shooting incident, Miles stepped into the scatback role and was featured prominently in both the passing and rushing attack for Arizona State.

Miles made 60 catches for 361 yards, scoring six receiving touchdowns. He scampered for 237 yards on the ground, even completing a passing touchdown against Missouri. His greatest impact, however, came in the special teams department. He ran back three kicks (two kickoffs, one punt) while returning the ball a total of 1,020 yards.

It is impossible to quantify his importance to the Sun Devils in 2011, being one of Brock Osweiler's favorite targets and an absolute terror on special teams. Lets take a look at a few of Miles' biggest plays in 2011.

Miles will play in integral role in Todd Graham's 2012 ASU offense. Hopefully he can bring the same level of excitement in the next campaign.
