Darryl Sharpton From Linebacker ‘U’

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on March 14, 2014 – 2:00 pm

Sharpton

Penn State is known as “Linebacker U”  for producing players like Jack Ham, Shane Conlan and LaVar Arrington, but in the past decade another program has vied for the title.

The University of Miami has a proud linebacker history with Ray Lewis, Dan Morgan, D.J. Williams, Rocky McIntosh,  and Jon Beason all becoming productive pros.

On Friday, the Redskins signed  free agent Darryl Sharpton, another member of the Miami linebacker fraternity. Sharpton told Larry Michael he looks to carry on the proud tradition of  Hurricanes in Washington, including his old college teammate Leonard Hankerson.

 

 

“It’s definitely very comforting knowing that I have former teammates on this team,” Sharpton said. “Former great Miami Hurricanes have come through here, Clinton Portis and Rocky McIntosh and some other guys.  It’s a real honor to kind of continue some of the great things they did for this organization, and I look forward to it.”

Other Miami alumni of note to play for the Redskins include wide receiver Santana Moss and safety Sean Taylor.

 

 

“Uncle”

Al Sharpton is Darryl Sharpton’s second cousin, but the linebacker said he calls him uncle.

Sharpton told Michael he was indeed related to the activist and that he visits with him about once a year. He said he remains close with Sharpton’s daughters, who have already congratulated him on signing with Washington.

    Uh, Sean Lee, Paul Posluszny, NaVorro Bowman, Cam Wake, Tamba Hali all disagree that any other school is Linebacker U
