Did You Know?:

According to an article that ran on newsok.com, Milton was given the nickname "Shake" by his late father, Myrion, who people called the "Milkman" when he played at Texas A&M. The younger Milton told the on-line news outlet that Shake "just stuck."

"I've been called that my whole life."

Quote of Note:

"I think that's what I'm trying to show out here, just that I can be a pesky defender - active, long, and get after people."
