Two Freshman Names Instantly Join the College Football Name Hall of Fame
Rowdy Beers and ‘Dude’ Person may sound like a couple of names you give to a cop who pulls you over for speeding when you have an arrest warrant out, but these two talented football players will be joining the college ranks next year.
Rowdy Beers is a 6-foot-5 225 lbs tight end from Littleton, Colorado. He has committed to Florida International next season. According to On3, he is a three-star recruit, while Rivals has him a two-star prospect. ESPN and 247Sports do not currently have a grade for Rowdy Beers.
Meanwhile, ‘Dude’ Person has committed to Central Arkansas according to his Twitter profile. According to his Hudl profile, Person is a 5-foot-11 195 lbs safety whose first name his actually Rontavious, but that is not quite as cool, so we are definitely rolling with ‘Dude’ for now.
