Texas A&M DE Myles Garrett Pens Poignant Thank You To Aggie Nation

Texas A&M defensive end Myles Garrett made the most of this three years in College Station.

He compiled 145 tackles (48.5 for loss), 32.5 sacks and seven forced fumbles in only 36 games. Garrett has aligned himself to potentially be the No. 1 overall pick in this year's NFL Draft.

This morning, The Players Tribune released a personal tribute from Garrett to Aggie Nation. In it, he thanked his coaches, teammates, fans and even the local taco restaurant.

Here's a quick excerpt:

There’s a popular saying used to describe life in College Station that goes, “From the outside looking in, you can’t understand it. From the inside looking out, you can’t explain it.”

It’s true. The most difficult part of telling another person what it means to be an Aggie is figuring out where to start.

You see, at Texas A&M, just about everything is rooted in tradition. From the yells, to the corps of cadets, to “the Wrecking Crew,” so many things here offer at least some nod to the past. And they’re all significant to so many different people.

Any Aggie fan should take his or her time and read Garrett's essay.
