Colorado Sports Hall of Fame honors Von Miller

Posted Jan 10, 2017

Von Miller was named the Male Athlete of the Year.

DENVER -- Super Bowl 50 MVP Von Miller will be among those honored at the 53rd annual Colorado Sports Hall of Fame Induction & Awards Banquet on Thursday, April 27, at the Denver Marriott City Center.

At a meeting on Tuesday, the Selection Committee of the Colorado Sports Hall of Fame named Miller the Male Athlete of the Year for 2016.

Miller will be honored at the banquet, as will one of the newest Colorado Sports Hall of Fame inductees, Champ Bailey. The Colorado Sports Hall of Fame Class of 2017 was selected this past October.

Last February, Miller was a one-man wrecking crew for the Broncos' defense in their 24-10 Super Bowl 50 victory over Carolina. In helping Denver to its first Super Bowl title in 17 years, the linebacker racked up 2.5 sacks and forced two fumbles that led to touchdowns, becoming just the 10th defensive player to be named Super Bowl MVP. All told, the Broncos defense chalked up four Panther turnovers. Miller followed that up with a 2016 season in which he was picked for the AP All-Pro first team for the third time after posting 13.5 sacks.

Since its inception in 1964, the Colorado Sports Hall of Fame has inducted 246 individuals -- prior to last October’s Hall of Fame selection meeting for the Class of 2017.
