Players with Team Names

Recommended Posts

Flipping to the Marshall at Memphis game tonight, I kept seeing cutaways to Marshall's running back Darius Marshall.

Pretty unique to see a team's name on the back of one of their player's jersey.

So what other examples can people think of that same situation (ex. some player with the last name Washington on the 'Skins, Caps or Wizards).

I seem to recall someone named Houston playing for the NFL Oilers back in the late '80s/early '90s.

Jeff Feagles used to play for the Eagles, so I guess that's one letter removed from being in this category!

That was Ken Houston with the Oilers.

Joe Washington played for the Redskins.

i always liked seeing Gerald Green on the celtics, though its a different phenomenon, because almost every team that gets Jahidi, Lendale, or James White has a white jersey.

Looking at USU's record when he starts, they really need to bench that guy.

Another partial example is Steve Young at Brigham Young (no small coincidence).

Indeed, Steve Young was a distant relative of Brigham Young.

I'll bet there'll never be a Badger named Wisconsin.
