Deebo Samuel earned his nickname from “Friday” bully

By now you know the name Deebo Samuel, but do you know where it came from?

Turns out, “Deebo” isn’t the real name of South Carolina’s Heisman contender; his actual name is Tyshun. He earned the nickname “Deebo” from the neighborhood bully in the popular movie Friday because he too was the neighborhood bully growing up.

Samuel’s father said in an interview, “As a kid I always took him over to people’s houses, and he always took stuff from people. Everywhere I go, I had to argue with somebody’s parent about him taking stuff from somebody’s kid. Pushing kids down. Being Deebo. Just being a bully.”

Samuel has bullied his way through two teams so far this season and taken two kick returns to the house.

Hopefully Kentucky’s defense takes on the mentality of Smokey on Saturday:

    I kind of hate this guy already! I’m hoping Jordan Jones introduces himself to Deebo in the rudest way possible.

    So your kid was a jerk and a bully and you just gave him the nickname of a movie jerk/bully. Great parenting.

    Not worried about USC….sure, they’re 2-0, but the quality of their two wins is like the writing on Game of Thrones: interesting from a distance, but no substance underneath.

      I want to believe that, but I have seen this movie before. Hate to say it, but I see USC Jr winning big on Saturday. I would love to be proven wrong.
