In his rookie season, Milo completed 22 of 26 field goal attempts, with 49 yards being his longest while kicking 79 punts for 3410 yards, averaging 43.2 yards per kick. He had 47 kick-offs for 2518 yards. On October 29, 2011, during a game at Mosaic Stadium, Milo tied the record for longest punt, punting the football 108 yards. The football was in the air over 65 yards, but rolled its way into the endzone for a point. After Eddie Johnson was released by the Saskatchewan Roughriders, Milo became the starting kicker for 2012.

Later into the 2012 season, the Riders signed Sandro DeAngelis to control kicking duties meanwhile Milo would punt full-time.

In January 2013, DeAngelis was released by the club and Milo once again became starting kicker. Ricky Schmitt would punt.
