The 49ers second round choose was a guest on Matt Maiocco’s 49ers Insider Podcast. We have some timestamps.
I consider a lot of us are going to throw style to the wayside when referring to San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel. He’s just Deebo. I do not care if I require to get in touch with him Samuel. He’s not Tyshun “Deebo” Samuel. Just Deebo.
Turns out he did in reality get the name from the character on Friday. For these of you who haven’t observed the film, Deebo was the neighborhood bully who triggered all sorts of chaos via several thefts and ultimately gets his towards the finish of the flick.
Samuel has observed the film and in his look on Matt Maiocco’s 49ers insider podcast they got ideal to how he got the name:
“It all came from when I was a tiny kid,” Samuel stated by way of the 49ers Insider Podcast. “My father stated I utilized to take stuff and bully little ones when I was tiny. So he gave me the nickname ‘Deebo’. Expanding up, it just stuck, even when I went to college. Even with the Deebo name, I figured they had been going to start off calling me Tyshun.”
It is not like it is a name Samuel hates. He’s fine with getting referred to as Deebo and even likes to attribute the name to a bully-like presence on the field.
“You gonna punish anyone who gets in front of you,” Deebo stated.
The podcast has some terrific stuff on Samuel expanding up with a brother who’s completed some really hard time and tutelage from Marcus Lattimore though at South Carolina. If you try to remember, Lattimore was drafted by the 49ers in the fourth round of the 2013 NFL draft.
