samuel l. jackson

What do you get when you combine receiver Traveon Samuel with his teammate, quarterback Lamar Jackson? Well, you get an acclaimed Hollywood actor:

Do you think Samuel and Jackson planned this in advance? Have they talked before about their “Samuel L. Jackson” connection? Maybe they noticed it during the game decided on the spot to try to go viral. No way it was a total coincidence.

Oh by the way, Lamar Jackson threw for six touchdowns and ran for two more, all in the first half, while Traveon Jackson caught a score of his own in a 70-14 Louisville victory. So we might see a little bit more Samuel L. Jackson before the season is done.

On the same night that Louisville gave us Samuel L. Jackson, Wake Forest offered up “Good Fortune,” courtesy of Keegan Good and Augustus Fortune.

That one has to be intentional, right?

As great as Samuel L. Jackson is (how he didn’t win an Oscar for Pulp Fiction will never make sense), the Louisville players’ arrangement might not top this one from the Lakers last season.

Seriously, all huddles should be arranged exclusively based on what celebrity names the jerseys will spell out.
