Acquired:

Highlights:
2017: After a remarkable training camp, Micah enjoyed a notable and productive rookie campaign with the Lions appearing in all 18 regular season games, the final nine of which were as a starter alongside Solomon Elimimian at the outside linebacker position. The hard-hitting defender tallied 54 tackles with another 16 on special teams along with a tackle for a loss, a pair of pass knockdowns and a forced fumble. He notched back-to-back season high nine-tackle performances versus Hamilton on September 22 and against Ottawa on October 10 while finishing the year with an eight-tackle outing versus Toronto.

 

2016: Micah was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He attended training camp with the club and was placed on the practice roster before being waived in September.

 

College:
Texas Tech's Micah Awe and the Red Raider defense will look to shut down TCU. (Stephen Spillman) 2012-2015: Micah appeared in 51 games over four productive years at Texas Tech racking-up 171 solo stops, seven tackles for a loss as well as a sack.  As a senior in 2015, the defensive team captain enjoyed a career-high 77 individual defensive stops which not only led the Red Raiders but was second in the Big 12 as well. The lofty totals earned him an All-Big 12 honorable mention to close out his college career.

 

Personal:
A native of Nigeria, Micah resides in Lubbock, Texas where he attended college. The Petroleum Engineering major has been playing football since the age of 12. He lists a 17-tackle performance in the 2016 Texas Bowl as his biggest football memory to date. The self-described computer buff likes to spend his down time listening to Childish Gambino and flying his drone.
