Nicknames = Greatness

One of the most important attributes that any athlete can have is a good nickname, a sportsman's nom de plume, if you will. Chris Samp certainly does not have a shortage of rock solid nicknames, many of which have been documented on this site. As a reader suggested, I thought it would be interesting and revealing to the Heisman Trophy voters to make a list of Samp's outstanding nicknames here. I may forget some, and Samp's brilliant fans are coming up with new ones every day, so if you have a good one please add it in the comments section.

Anyways, on to the nicknames:

  • SuperSamp
  • Sampras (for he is also skilled in tennis)
  • Hyper-juggernaut extreme
  • Offensivus Maximus
  • G.O.A.T. (Greatest of all time)
  • Tecmo Bowl
  • Diamond Awesome Butterscotch
  • Deceptive (because white receivers are always "Deceptively fast")
  • President of Warrior Nation
  • The mayor of touchdown city
