Brethren Christian begins life after David Priestley, who has moved on to play quarterback at Ohio State. The Warriors are not without a valid replacement in Miller, who has the size and the talent to be successful. Oregon State and Washington State are among a handful of Division I schools looking at Miller. Also getting attention from several schools is Castillo, one of four returning starters for the Warriors.
