Von Miller is a Texas A&M legend. He was a Butkus Award winner and two-time All-American in Aggieland, and has gone on to have perhaps the most successful career of any Aggie ever, totaling more than 100 sacks, going to eight Pro Bowls, being named Super Bowl 50 MVP and being named to the 2010 NFL All Decade Team. But his career took a minor detour in 2020, when a dislocated peroneal tendon (ouch!) suffered in practice cost him the entire season.

But Von is back in full form in 2021, and has been rewarded for his efforts, being named the AFC Defensive Player of the Month for September.

Through three games, Miller has four sacks and eight tackles, including six tackles for loss.
