DeAndre Levy has had three NFL seasons where he racked up at least 100 tackles. He picked off six passes in 2013 and was arguably one of the best linebackers in the league at the time. Before he became such, Levy was known as the guy who broke Joe Paterno's leg.

It happened 10 years ago and while it was completely accidental, Levy doesn't regret it one bit. Nope, not even a little.

In a feature for Men's Journal, Levy called it "my proudest moment in college."
