Default John "Nickname" Smith

OK, I have noticed a trend in our recruiting threads, apparently all High School football players being recruited have a nickname. So here is my question, if you were a Highly rated High School recruit, what would your nickname be, form it in this way, no need to give your real name.

John "Nickname" Smith

Bulldozer or maybe just Dozer because I'm short, slow, and fat and when I get to running, I don't stop until I've demolished everything in my path.

I think I would go with something really obscure like "Bingo" or "Goat" or something. I like the idea of people wondering, "what in the heck does that mean?"

I see the same thing in the obituaries and have been trying to come up with a nickname for myself for when the time comes. If I live to be old it'll probably be "bedpan" or something like that.

Because of my last name my football nick would probably be Goose or Goober but I'd choose Chainsaw.

Mine was 'Tank' from my soccer days. In the club leagues I played in, so-called shoulder tackles were legal so you could throw your body into someone, basically a body check, as long as your elbow was touching your body it was legal.

I got sort of a reputation for knocking people on their asses - I played defense pretty much exclusively.

Pacman in soccer. I was a FB for a while and they said that I gobbled up the ball like Pacman.

My father had other nicknames for me when he was mad, but I cannot type them on a family fourm

In reality I had two. When I was in middle school I played some football for a rec league. My coach didn't like me very much & I was not very good. He called me numb nuts.

Also my friends found out that if you spell my name backwards it spelled Geek.

Of course the ladies called me Studly

Some of my friends started calling me "Slurp" when I was like 12, because I have a large tongue. That nickname is still going strong.

Magilla is what some people call me, though it's not widely used. Also, for a brief while, some people I used to work with called me Kool-Aid.

I guess mine would be "lencho". It has stuck with me for over 20 years and I still respond to it.

"Mule" cause my HS coach always said I was stubborn like a mule. Played RB in HS and I was stubborn to go down when tackled and played LB and never listen to the coaches and did my own thing which in turn got me a scholarship to play football.

One of my mom's friend at work told her that I was called muled because the girls said I was hung like one. That lady pulled a good one on her cause my mom was mad as a bull on rodeo night. Coach had to expalin to her the truth. and that Skittles was not some type of new drug.

Yes. The reasons my friends had for choosing the name were odd, at best.

That's pretty funny. One of my off skate officials got that nickname last year from the girls. He's generally quiet, so when they started stomping and chanting his name, I could see him across the venue turning every shade of red possible.
