Two brothers who were members of the Troy State football team that won the NCAA Division II championship last weekend were killed in a car accident in south Alabama, authorities said.
State Troopers and Conecuh County Coroner Danny Garnett identified the players as Thomas Willis Miller Jr., 18, and Sean Stacy Miller, 19. John Stacy Miller, Sean's twin brother, and Wayne McDuffy Stallworth, 19, also died in the accident.
Garnett said the car driven by John Miller collided with the front of a tractor-trailer and was split in half by the impact.
Thomas and Sean Miller, both freshmen, played against Portland State Saturday in the Division II national championship, which Troy won, 31-17. Sean Miller played defensive tackle, and Thomas Miller played outside linebacker.
