At bet365, we don’t do ordinary.
And neither does Washington Commanders wide receiver Curtis Samuel.
Samuel first announced himself on the national stage while at Ohio State, where he enjoyed a hugely successful career and became one of college football’s most dynamic players.
In Samuel’s three years in Columbus, the Buckeyes won the inaugural College Football Playoff in 2015, a Fiesta Bowl in 2016, and posted a 37-4 overall record. He became the first player in Ohio State history to log 1,000+ rushing and 1,000+ receiving yards in a career.
The freak athleticism and versatility Samuel displayed in scarlet and gray has translated into the pros for both the Carolina Panthers and now the Commanders.
The Washington wide-out is one of six NFL players to record 3,000+ receiving yards and 600+ rushing yards since 2016, along with Tyreek Hill, Alvin Kamara, Christian McCaffrey, Austin Ekeler, and Deebo Samuel.
“The things I can do with the ball,” Samuel said.
“I can make guys miss, reverse fields… I do a lot of things a lot of people say you shouldn’t do. I try to reverse fields all the time, but if it’s not there, I won’t force it.”
One of Samuel’s ‘Never Ordinary’ moments on the field came when he did just that.
Playing for the Panthers against the Buccaneers in 2018 Week 9, Samuel caught a reverse 10 yards behind the line of scrimmage, ran down the left sideline, then all the way across the field while juking defenders and into the right corner of the end zone.
It’s not often you see a player breeze past defenders positioned in front of them like Samuel did on that play.
“Some things that you may not say people should do, but I did it.”
