Born in St. Louis, Missouri, Lawyer Milloy ended up playing his high school ball at Lincoln High School in Tacoma. One of the better athletes in the state of Washington, Milloy decided to stay home and play for the local Huskies. He would go on to become arguably the best safety in the history of the football program.
It did not take Milloy long to become a force on the Huskies defense, as he became the first sophomore in school history to be named a first-team All-Pac-10 player. Milloy led the team in tackles that season. By his senior campaign, Milloy had worked himself into being a consensus All-American, where he was named to the first-team in 1995.
Incredibly, Milloy also lettered in baseball during his time in college, becoming one of the better overall student-athletes the school had ever seen. He would end up making football his living, as the New England Patriots made him their second-round pick in the 1996 NFL Draft. He would become an All-Pro for the Patriots in 1999. He had a decorate career with New England, bringing home a bunch of hardware.
Named to four Pro Bowls, Milloy would win Super Bowl XXXVI as a member of the Patriots, becoming one of the better defensive backs in team history. A member of the Husky Hall of Fame, the Milloy name still lives on at the school, as his daughter Amirah is a member of the women’s softball team.
