During a Saturday night celebration in Orlando, Fla., the M CON/Monster Energy Super Cat-class team’s Tyler Miller and Myrick Coil were inducted into the American Power Boat Association Hall of Champions. Per tradition, the event culminated the 100-plus-year-old organization’s annual meeting.

But along the way, Miller and Coil displayed true sportsmanship and breathtaking humility, which makes the honor even more richly deserved. And in 2023, they had the added weight of fielding the Monster Energy/M CON team in their rookie Union Internationale Motonautique Class 1 season, where the finished fourth overall.
