Former Texas A&M Aggies and current Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller will be inducted into his school’s Hall of Fame this upcoming year on Sept. 15.
That weekend, the Aggies will host Louisiana-Lafayette in a non-conference game from Kyle Field, their third game of the season. With Miller being inducted on Friday, followed by the Aggies game on Saturday, he will then have to get back to Denver on Sunday for the team’s matchup against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 2 of the NFL season.
A 4-star recruit coming out of high school in DeSoto, Texas, Miller chose to stay in-state and play for the Aggies. He would begin his career suspended by head coach Mike Sherman, just to develop into the nation’s sack leader as soon as his junior season. He totaled 17 sacks to go along with 21 tackles for loss that year.
By the time he was done with the Aggies, he had become both a two-time first team All-Big-12 selection, as well as two-time first team All-American. He was recognized as the Butkus Award winner in 2010, the first time he would win the honor, before winning it again at the professional level with the Broncos in 2012.
The 50.5 tackles for loss, along with his 33 career sacks with the Aggies led to Denver selecting Miller second overall in the 2011 NFL Draft. He immediately made an impact, becoming the NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year. He has gone on to become a five-time Pro Bowler and three-time first team All-Pro selection, as well as a Super Bowl MVP.
