Great Colts of the Decade: No-Name Player

This category was suggested by readers. A no-name player is someone who seemed to come out of no where and capture the attention and hearts of fans. In some cases, these were rookie free agents that made WOW! plays at the right moment. Others are "lunch pale" kind of guys who were consistent at their job, no matter the position: Blocking, long-snapping, run-stuffing, special teams tackling, etc.

They may not be household names, but they are names any Colts fan would recognize.

I made on exception from the list: Luke Lawton. While we all loved to cheer "Luuuuuuuuuuuuuuke" every time he got a carry, or that one time he scored a TD late in the 2007 season, it seems Luke might have been doping at that time. Luke was recently suspended by the NFL for violating the banned performance enhancements policy, which essentially labels Luke a cheater. We maintain a strict and consistent edict here at Stampede Blue that once a player or coach is caught for cheating, it taints everything the player or coach did prior to the penalty. Thus, he is no longer worthy of being a great no-name player. I hope all of you agree with me on this point, sad as it is.

Obviously, with this category, I assume we will have a lot of write-ins. Feel free to do so in the comments.
