We’ve seen our fair share of awesome names in college football over the years, but we’ve never seen one quite like this.

Auburn has a defensive back who might have the best and most interesting name in college football history.

His name is Smoke Monday.

To be fair, he was born with the name Quindarious Monday, but Auburn coach Gus Malzahn revealed that he “called him Smoke the whole time he was being recruited.”

“It came from my granddad,” Monday said. “I used to just run around the house, so he started calling me ‘Smoke.’”

During 2018, Smoke tallied up 15 tackles, 2 sacks, and 1 interception as a freshman playing safety. Let’s hope he does big things in 2019, just so we can hear his name more.
