Von Miller: Attending Texas A&M Was The Best Decision Of My Life

Von Miller took to Twitter to reminisce and also pat himself on the back for choosing Texas A&M to continue his football career.

On Halloween in 2006, high school senior Von Miller made a life-changing decision. He chose to attend Texas A&M over several other big-name schools like Ole Miss, Oklahoma and Florida.

He maintains it was the best decision of his life.

Check it out:

I mean, it's hard to disagree with him. At just 27 years old and in his sixth season in the NFL he's already a Super Bowl champion and a Super Bowl MVP, and he's looking to snag his first NFL Defensive Player of the Year award this year.

Miller spent four years at Texas A&M, earning All-American and All-Big 12 honors in his 2009 and 2010 seasons. In 2010 he won the Butkus award as the nation's top linebacker. Miller entered the NFL draft as a projected top-five pick, and went second overall to the Denver Broncos.

And what's his degree in, you might be wondering? Poultry science. Miller, the 250-pound fear-inciting outside linebacker raises chickens in his spare time.
