QLIMG Sport’s Mom of the Year

Jeannie and Brandon Miller
Our Featured QLIMG Sport’s Mom of the Year entry for December is Jeannie Miller.  Below is her story, written by her son Brandon.


My mom's name is Jeannie Miller, and I truly believe she is the greatest Hockey Mom of all time. She has been my inspiration for her unwavering dedication to the biggest passion in my life...hockey! I have been playing organized hockey for about eight years now and she has always been the driving force for me to succeed as a goaltender. She knows that my ultimate dream is to make it to the N.H.L and she has made my dream her #1 priority. She has unselfishly given up her (very early) mornings, afternoons and evenings so I may follow my dream. She always makes sure that my equipment is just right, that my skates are always sharpened properly and is always there to give me my water in between periods. All this in addition to taking care of my four other siblings and my elderly grandparents who lives with us. I know in my heart that when draft day comes along in a few years and I am finally putting on that Islander jersey, it will be because of MY MOM!!!

Do you have the greatest mom that she deserves the title of Sports Mom of the Year?  If so, it could win you a trip for four (4) to a family destination in Orlando, Florida for three (3) nights. Click here to learn more.
