Devlin Hodges Facts
- For 3 years in a row (2016-2018), Devlin was named the ‘SoCon Offensive Player of the Year’ as well as included in the ‘First-team All-SoCon‘. The SoCon (Southern Conference) is a collegiate athletic conference affiliated with the NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association) Division I. The conference’s member institutions are located in the American states of Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia.
- During the senior year (2018) of his college football career (2014-2018), he set the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision (the 2nd-highest level of college football in the United States) career record for passing completions (1,310), attempts (1,896), and passing yards (14,584).
- In 2018, Devlin was also honored with ‘The Walter Payton Award’, presented annually (since 1995) to the most outstanding offensive player in the NCAA Division I Football Championship Subdivision and chosen by a nationwide panel of media and college sports information directors. The honor is named after Walter Jerry Payton (d. November 1, 1999) who is widely regarded as one of the greatest American football players of all time.
- Devlin earned the nickname ‘Duck’ during his time at Samford University due to his expertise in duck hunting and duck calling. A duck call may either refer to the sound-imitation process used in waterfowl hunting (the practice of hunting ducks, geese, or other waterfowl for food and sport) or the actual tool which the person uses to do so. He had won the Junior World Duck Calling Contest in 2009 (aged 13) as well as the 2018 Alabama State Duck Calling Championship.
