Career

2021: Micah landed with the Ottawa REDBLACKS and appeared in all 14 games while registering 74 defensive tackles, three sacks (both career-highs) and a pair of forced fumbles.

2020: signed with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers early in free agency but would not suit up for the club after the season was cancelled due to COVID-19.

2019: joined the Toronto Argonauts as a free agent and registered 44 defensive tackles, an interception, one sack and a forced fumble in ten contests.

2017-18: Micah originally joined the Lions ahead of 2017 training camp and emerged as one of the more productive newcomers, earning a spot in the starting defence.  As a rookie, he would finish third on the team with 54 defensive tackles while the punishing defender added 16 more tackles on special teams.

He was then released by the Lions to sign with the New York Jets but would be waived by the team in late April. Returned to the Lions in August and recorded 31 defensive stops and three more on special teams in seven games.

2016: Micah signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as a non-drafted free agent and would be released from the practice roster in mid-December.

 

College

2013-2015: Micah suited up in 38 games at Texas Tech, racking up 253 combined tackles (163 solo, 90 assisted), six pass knockdowns and a pair of sacks. As a senior, Awe led all Red Raider defenders with 126 combined tackles.
