Syracuse Football: Get To Know Your Orange Man - # 50 Femi Aliyu

via media.syracuse.com

We keep it rolling today with walk-on Femi Aliyu.  For profiles of the rest of our players, click here.

Player:  Femi Aliyu

Number:  #50

Position:  Linebacker

Height:  5'11"

Weight:  215

Hometown:  Baldwin, NY

High School:  Baldwin

2010 Stats:  Femi didn't get into any games as a freshman last season.

2011 Projections:  Don't expect Femi to see much time on defense.  Special Teams is a distinct possibility though.

How'd He Get Here?:  Like many of our walk-ons, Femi is a legacy player.  His mother, Olubukunola Phillips Aliyu (awesome), is a '79 SU grad.

What'd Scout/Rivals Say?:  Neither had recruiting profiles set up for Femi.

Money Quote:  

"Like mike tyson and robin givens, the strongest man can be brought down by an evil woman....(but i think u sweeter than sweet)"

-Sage advice from Femi's Twitter feed.

Links of Wonder:  Here's Femi's (or alter-ego Yung Yantaz's) Twitter profile.  It's...interesting.

What Does Doug Marrone Think?:  Doug's probably just happy about how Femi helps out the team's academics. Femi is a member of the National Honors Society and is currently majoring in Mechanical Engineering.

Interesting Nugget O'Interest:  Femi kept quite busy during high school.  Besides being a great student, as noted above, he lettered in football (where he never missed a game in four years), basketball and lacrosse.  I wonder how he is at face-offs.  

Let Me Get a Good Look At You:  I can't find anything worth posting, so if anyone comes across any sweet Femi Aliyu highlight tapes or interviews, send them on over.

Update: Here's some highlights, posted under Femi's fullname, Hassan Femi. Thanks to Bukun Phillips Aliyu, who I'm going to guess is related.
