Alright, since Wes has so politely asked us to dive in tonight my question goes out to all those "other guys".
Who would yall say is the best role player in the recent history of the great university? Someone who might not have been an NFL type guy, or superstar, but bled orange and played for the team.
I'll throw out Nick Reveiz. He was always an underdog, but proved a ton of people wrong. He always played hard, even though he wasn't the superstar.
Football, basketball... Whatever you choose

Inky Johnson, not the same role as Reviez but that dude played a big role.
Nick Reviez or Dan Williams from recent years!
Inky was well on his way to playing in the NFL at the time of his unfortunate injury, so I'm not sure he fits the description.
How about Chris Walker? Or maybe Wes Brown?

Oh I agree with that. I was just saying after the injury. Josh McNeil fought through a lot as well
Both good names!
I was gonna say Wes Brown but ryan stole it so i'll go with Austin Johnson
Formally known as govols011 - follow me on twitter @C_Dillard6
One of my favorite guys to watch while I was a student was Ryan Karl. That guy always seemed to be around the action.
If you all are like me then you could probably
name about 100 guys. I might end up doing that before the night is over. It's a pretty vague question.
Basketball is where it's a little tougher
In basketball Dane Bradshaw.
I always enjoyed watching Xavier Mitchell play (that hit to stop the 2 pt conversion against Air Force was awesome). On offense how about someone like Lucas Taylor or the guy Swain claims only caught TD's Bret Smith.

Not sure he really proved people wrong necessarily, but Grindstaff played with great determination like an underdog. Can't remember first name.
Al Wilson. He did make it to the NFL, but what a leader and motivator he was.
Nevin Mckenzie and Raynoch Thompson
I was waiting for someone to mention him. Good choice.
Probably not the best answer for this question but I loved the guy to death anyway..... Bill Duff.
Also, Kevin Simon.
Your team. All the time.
Skylar McStache McBee.
Says The Wizard of Oz!
No, I think that's a very good answer. Good college player who's known mostly for the big stop he made against Ohio State in the Citrus Bowl.
"Tough Stuff" Bill Duff. The New Jersey Nightmare.
I think Shaun Bryson would qualify too. He was definitely good enough to play RB at any school, yet he spent most of his time at full-back blocking for others. Definitely sacrificed alot for the team. I always thought he was a crowd favorite. I know he bled orange for sure!
