Aggie Football’s star defensive end DeMarvin Leal is heading to the Iron City. The Pittsburgh Steelers drafted Leal in the third round of the 2022 NFL Draft. The Aggies have had a streak of defensive linemen drafted, beginning with Kingsley Keke and Daylon Mack in 2019. Justin Madubuike was selected by the Baltimore Ravens in 2020 and Bobby Brown III went to the L.A. Rams last year.
