UNC player has 1 of the best names in college football history
There’s an All-Name Team, and then, there’s an All-Time, All-Name Team.
North Carolina defensive back Storm Duck would belong to the latter. How have we not heard of Duck before? It took a pandemic and conference cancellations for this glorious name to be brought to light.
The Tar Heels are playing in their first game of the season Saturday against ACC foe Syracuse, and Duck’s name will likely be trending on social media at some point today or certainly this season.
Duck is from Boiling Springs, South Carolina, and he was rated a 3-star recruit exiting high school. The sophomore cornerback played in 13 games and made 9 starts in 2019. We would have made him a 5-star based on name alone.
I just hope the Oregon Ducks tried to sign him.
