It's confirmed: Dallas football stud Von Miller will join the celebrity cast of Dancing With the Stars. You likely know the Denver Broncos linebacker as the Super Bowl 50 MVP. But long before he was an NFL stud, he played football at DeSoto High School, then at Texas A&M University.

- Actress Mischa Barton, with Artem Chigvintsev
