He was awarded for his outstanding performance and attendance. He also became very obsessed and active with the physical fitness program, where he competed in competitions and won trophies for the strongest person in the school pound for pound among other fitness awards. Along with that Miles competed in the very popular muscle posing competition at the school where besides other titles and trophies he would win the coveted title of "Mr. Wingate" which he would win three consecutive years in a row. In high school, this along with his outstanding academic record, graduating no. 8 in his graduating class overall, would make Miles among the most popular students in the school.
