It's Wednesday, which means it's time to get to know a little bit more (or just anything at all) about one of the Southeastern Conference's football players. Now when this player succeeds, massively fails or is shown milling around in the background of a TV shot, you'll know that his greatest off-the-field accomplishment involves the sale and transportation of hobos. Or something like that.
The team of the player selected is chosen through a super-secret process which I cannot reveal, however, the number of the player is randomly chosen by visiting www.random.org and using whatever number is spat out from its random-creating machine.
My apologies for letting this 1997 Ford Taurus of a feature fall into a state of repair that awaits all Ford Tauruses: EXTINCTION. Anyway, it's back up and running in a non-flashy but effective way.
Today's number: 22
Today's team: Kentucky
And an action shot:
Some background information: It's about damn time we found someone with personality. Although, the last player with personality that was featured was Tennessee's Denarius Moore, who helped beat the hell out of a bar patron and possibly an off-duty cop. Let's hope Danny can avoid such a curse.
Self-described as "Danny Flowddaa Boy Trevathan," Danny came to Kentucky out of the state of Florida, where, by all accounts, was a pretty good high school player, winning various awards from various publications. More importantly, if you're a Kentucky fan (if you exist), he's the leading returning tackler for a defense that finally didn't finish in the bottom third of most defensive categories (however, they did manage to finish 11th in rushing defense). So his performance for 2010 is paramount to holding steady at a solid 8th or 7th ranking in total defense.
Greatest on-field accomplishment: In the Wildcats' 21-14 upset win at Auburn last season (JEVAN SNEAD, HOW COULD YOU NOT BEAT THAT TEAM), Danny recorded 11.5 tackles and helped harass Chris Todd into a Chris Todd performance (10-24, 80 yards, 0 TDs, 1 INT). He also forced and recovered a fumble late in the fourth quarter on the Kentucky 1-yard line in their dramatic (if possible, it was dramatically boring) win over Georgia in Athens.
Greatest off-the-field accomplishment: This. Or this.
Way(s) in which he has embarrassed himself, his family, team and school: He has kept himself to the path of the straight and narrow.
Strengths: Speed, agility, AWESOME NICKNAME, Rich Brooks probably knows him by name.
Weaknesses: Rich Brooks is no longer at Kentucky to teach him new profane ways in which to express his emotions.
What to look for in 2010: If you want to see Danny, he'll be on the field. And given the strong candidacy of Mike Hartline for the 2010 Awww-Shit Trophy, he could be on the field for many, many minutes.
