Myles Garrett is a freak of nature. He always has been. Back in high school, he was built like a G.I. Joe who towered over his pee wee opponents. When the now-Cleveland Browns defensive end took his talents to Texas A&M, he simply dominated off the edge.

Garrett left College Station with 32.5 sacks, good for sixth all-time in program history behind Von Miller’s 33 sacks. Standing 6-foot-4 and 270 pounds, Garrett used his massive frame to shed blocks and instill fear in opposing quarterbacks for the Aggies.

When Texas A&M took on Auburn in 2014, he affected the game on special teams as well.

The Aggies were already up 28-17 when Auburn kicker Daniel Carlson attempted a field goal to try to bring the Tigers within a touchdown just before halftime at Jordan-Hare Stadium.

Myles Garrett, who was just a freshman during the game, bulldozed his way through the line and got his big claw of a hand on the football before it could sail. The ball rolled toward Deshazor Everett, who scooped it up and returned it for a 65-yard touchdown as the clock expired in the first half.

Texas A&M, led by Garrett and quarterback Kyle Allen, went on to take down the reigning SEC champions and No. 3 team in the country on their home field by a score of 41-38.

Myles Garrett’s block was a massive reason why the Aggies pulled off the road upset, and he’ll always be a legend in College Station for plays like this one.
