Crabcakes and football...

Name: Sean Tucker

Position: Running Back

Year: Freshman

Height: 5’10”

Weight: 202 lbs.

Hometown: Owings Mills, Md.

High School: Calvert Hall

2019 stats: As a senior, Tucker ran for 1,204 yards and 14 scores. Also won the MIAA indoor track 55-meter championship.

2020 projections: It’s a crowded backfield right now for the Syracuse Orange. And with a good deal of experience already in front of Tucker, he’s likely set to redshirt this season.

How’d he get here?: SU fought off Wisconsin (difficult) and Rutgers (not as much) in the Power Five ranks, along with Air Force, Kent State and others. Tucker picked the Orange pretty early on — April — in the 2020 cycle.

What’d recruiting sites say?: Three stars from everyone, and Tucker was one of the top 15 prospects from Maryland in 2020, according to ESPN.

Money quote: Calvert Hall head coach Donald Davis has done his homework

“I think if you look at what (head) coach (Dino) Babers and those guys have done, (Tucker) fits their system. You look at what they do, he’s a great complementary piece in their offense.”

Tweets of wonder: Syracuse isn’t in Maryland, but should still name a “Crab Bowl Player of the Week” each week anyway.

What movie would Dino recommend for him?: Actor Sean Tucker has appeared in various films over the years, including 2002’s Confessions of a Dangerous Mind. In George Clooney’s directorial debut, Sam Rockwell plays a fictionalized version of game show host Chuck Barris, who claimed to also be a CIA assassin.

Interesting nugget o’interest: A lot of Syracuse players come in as two- or three-sport athletes out of high school. But Tucker’s incredibly accomplished in both football and track. Along with the obvious football accolades that got him a Syracuse offer, he’s also a two-time 55-meter dash champion in indoor track, and took home the 100-meter and 200-meter titles as a junior in high school as well. Dino Babers loves speed, and Tucker certainly fits that bill.

Let’s get a look at ya: Of course, you’re getting some Hudl highlights.
