Brad Miller, of Lee’s Summit, Mo., was voted by his fellow PBA Tour competitors as the 2020 PBA Steve Nagy Sportsmanship Award winner in recognition of his sportsmanship on and off the lanes.
Although the 2020 season was interrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic, the 30-year-old Miller still managed to have the best year of his career, qualifying for two televised finals appearances in addition to advancing to the round of eight in the PBA Playoffs. Miller finished the season ranked 10th in earnings, doubling his previous year’s total, and 11th overall in competition points.
Off the lanes, Miller serves as chairman of the PBA Players Committee. A group of touring players that share input from the entire membership on a variety of programs that impact professional bowlers. Along with Kyle Sherman, Miller also runs the Brad & Kyle YouTube channel, which gives their fans insight into PBA life through the players’ eyes.
The Nagy sportsmanship award has been presented annually since 1966, the year of Nagy’s death, honoring his memory as a PBA Hall of Famer and founding member whose guidance in the PBA’s formation years was considered critical to the tour’s success.
