A four-time All-Big West Conference selection at linebacker, DeShone Myles led the team in tackles in all four years at Nevada and is Nevada's career leader in tackles with 528 (next on the list is Matt Clafton with 388). The 1996 Big West Defensive Player of the Year and a member of Nevada's Team of the Century, he never missed a game and started all but one in his career and helped the Wolf Pack to four Big West Conference championships and a pair of appearances in the Las Vegas Bowl. Myles turned in four of the top six single-season marks for tackles in school history and still holds Nevada's single-game tackles record, turning in 20 tackles in a 1995 game at San Diego State. He was drafted in the fourth round of the 1998 NFL Draft by the Seattle Seahawks. He played in 12 games in 1998 and four games in 1999 before a knee injury ended his season.
