Former Penn State All-American defensive lineman Matt Millen’s journey back to broadcast booth was chronicled in an episode of “The B1G Story” Tuesday night. Two years ago, Millen was diagnosed with amyloidosis, a rare condition that can cause an irregular heartbeat or enlarged heart, and a year later, stepped away from his job as a color commentator with the Big Ten Network. He proved his resilience, though, when he returned to the broadcast booth during Penn State’s 2019 Blue-White spring game.
The 30-minute episode opened up with Millen enduring his recovery process in July 2018. He discussed his “work for everything you got” mentality that he developed growing up with seven sisters and three brothers.
