The Name Game

Michigan Tech quarterback has the most unbelievable football name ever

August 27, 2018

Let's talk about the best football names of all time. There's Joe Montana and Deacon Jones. There's Bart Starr, Lynn Swann, Takeo Spikes, Red Grange, and Bronko Nagurski. There's even Alge Crumpler. But no one can compare to Michigan Tech's 6' 3", 226-pound redshirt freshman QB [opening notes of "Rock You Like a Hurricane" rain down from the sky like thunder] STEELE FORTRESS.

Rejoice, fellow Americans. We have finally found it—the ultimate football name.

Now admittedly Steele Fortress has a few different glove-like fits. It could just as easily be one of Dolph Lundgren's secret agent aliases or the stage name of an '80s porn star, but I think it's safe to say that Steele Fortress was born to play football. And if the whole football thing doesn't work out, Steele is civil engineering major. Yes, the man known as Steele's backup plan is to build bridges for a living. This honestly can't get any better.

The true heroes here, however, are Steele's parents. Their names? Marty and Gina, who presumably named Steele while smoking a joint and watching Total Recall. Thank you for this gift to football, Marty, Gina. The world can never repay you.
