Samford Names to Know

Was going to put pictures of players, but their football promos are fantastic, much better than RISE.


“In Fabian we Truss.” Samford’s RB Fabian Truss will be the name you hear most often tonight. He is coming off of a 219 yard performance against Elon (What’s an Elon?) that put him over 1,000 rushing yards on the season. The athletic back is their go-to player and accounts for 48% of their total yards and is 3rd in the nation in all purpose yards with 182.5 ypg.


“I’ll take cherry tart over Jaquisky Tartt.” Samford’s Defensive back is one of the best in FCS, leading the SoCon conference in interceptions and passes defended. Samford’s defense relies on turnovers and is effective at getting their offense the ball with a +8 turnover margin on the year. Whitlow and Towles need to bring their A game in order to send off the Seniors the right way.


Summer, summer, Summerlin, time to sit back and unwind.” Samford’s SR QB Andy Summerlin leads an offense that averages 220 yards passing a game. Samford establishes a great running game (156 ypg) before using Summerlin in play action to produce big plays.


“Boo-Yaw!” Samford’s career scoring leader is their placekicker Cameron Yaw. Kickers need great names like this– look at Lones Seiber or Sebastian Janikowski– the name simply adds pretty boy swag.


I’m not going to make a pun out of RS-SO Tight End Trett Hardman‘s name, but the options are limitless.

    UK football does not inspire prayer (as the Samford poster suggests), but it has made me yell “Goddammit!” on numerous occasions this season.
