Best Football Names...

In the spirit of D’Andre Swift, what are the most appropriately named football players you can remember? Off the top of my head, I always thought you couldn’t go wrong with a head-hunting safety named Rambo.

    Lol, ok, if that's the direction we're going, then Max Johnson should be the #1 recruit this year.

    Always thought Mercury Morris was aptly named but another that always sticks out has to be Bronko Nagurski.

    For those of you who have been following recruiting for a while you may recognize the name of this UGA commit - Clitidus Hunt.

    I'm waiting for the equipment staff to slap the tape with his first initial and last name on his practice helmet.

    Mack Strong is the best ever name for a Fullback.

    Former U-Washington QB Sonny Sixkiller.

    Just remembered that I used to think the old D-lineman Matt Storm had a pretty cool name.

    The most porcine (non-Arkansas) team in history, however, had to be when Miss St. had a roster containing both a Pig Prather and a Porkchop Womack.

    2022 recruit who may be the number 1 QB at the time of Gunner Stockton. What better QB name than “Gunner?”

    I'm still trying to grasp the fact that there is a cruel parent that would actually name their child; 'Ha Ha Clinton Dix'. The moment I turned 18 I would head to the courthouse and change my name to John or Sam .

    UGA defensive tackle Jimmy "bringing the" Payne, as a kid I always thought that was the best football name ever. A Close second was Notre Dame LB Mike Stonebreaker.
