Here's one from the past, a time when many here were not yet born. How about former Arizona State and Cleveland Brown's (69-74) wide receiver Fair Hooker? Pretty tough to beat that in my book!

I was thinking more this year. Frankie Ferrari, certainly... And Mo Bamba of Texas.

Still, though... Nevada Apollo is darn cool.

One I liked from several years ago was a girl's basketball player in the NWAC, Birdy Wormy.

And one of my favorites? Majestic Mapp (http://www.virginiasports.com/sports/m-baskbl/mtt/majestic_mapp_58350.html)! Not only that, but his brother was Scientific Mapp!!

Do name-changes qualify? Certainly not relevant this year, but World B. Free is the all-time greatest name in my book. And for Inland Empire local interest, I nominate Samoa Samoa.

I almost wrote him in yesterday. Samoa Samoa from Samoa! Starting QB for the Cougs before Rypien.
