Number Association Countdown – #11 – Rashad Faison

Rashad Faison is a guy who gets a lot of “one of my favorite Gamecocks ever” mentions. A little too slow to play corner, a lot too small to play linebacker, Faison helped define the Spur position in Charlie Strong’s defense. He was small (5′-9″) and in uniform looked like he should be playing for a JV team, but had a knack for finding ball carriers. He was second on the team in tackles in 2000, and led the team in tackles and TFL’s in 2001. And that was accomplished on a couple of pretty stout defensive units.

He’s another player who had to live through 0-11 to get to the great turnaround of 2000-2001. He was one of several who had a shining moment in the 2000 Georgia game. Early in the video below he gives a forearm shiver to Quincy Carter, then later makes a nice diving pick of a Carter pass (the fourth of five overall, in case you need a reminder…and I know you don’t).
