CLEAR LAKE, TX -- Ryan Miller always loved a good challenge.
According to his mother, when he was six months old, he would climb out of his crib. Later on, he channeled that adventurous spirit through sports in school.
Now he's set to take on his latest adventure. Miller, a graduate of Clear Lake High School and Clear Lake resident, recently received a call-back to compete in NBC and Esquire Network's American Ninja Warrior.
"It was a long day yesterday, but feeling good today, another day," Miller said last week while taking a break from the intense training and preparation for the qualifying course to be filmed on March 28-29 at the Berry Center in Houston.
American Ninja Warrior follows competitors throughout the country to qualify for the finals in their region for the chance to compete in Las Vegas. That competition consists of a series of grueling, four-stage obstacle courses based on Mt. Midoriyama in Japan and a chance to win $500,000.
