Long Island University Athletics
Long Island University football has not made the FCS playoffs since 2018, but the Sharks are hopeful that this might be the year that things swing back in the other direction. A large part of that hope stems from quarterback Derek Green, who transferred in to the program during the offseason after getting beat out for the starting job at SMU last fall.
But their schedule is not easy.
- at Toledo
- vs. Villanova
- at Kent State
- vs. Bryant
- at Merrimack
- vs. Saint Francis
- at Wagner
- at Duquesne
- vs. Central Connecticut State
- vs. Stonehill
- at Sacred Heart
Although there is a bit of an uphill battle the the playoffs, it is not out of reach. And if there is anyone who can help the Sharks get back to the postseason, it is redshirt sophomore Blake Nevitt.
The 6-foot-0, 250-pound fullback — the only player at his position on the roster — is a warrior. He has overcome three (!!) torn ACLs and continues to battle.
Whether he sees the field or not in 2022, Nevitt is the ultimate glue guy. He looks exactly how a fullback at Long Island should look.
Nevitt recently took his team photo and it’s perfect. With a tattoo on his left tricep, Nevitt is flexing and screaming at the camera.
His mustache is glorious and his semi-fauxhawk is incredible. To complete the look, Nevitt is one of the few players in college football who still rocks the cowboy collar.
Everything about Nevitt’s look is exactly what it should be and it’s amazing.

If you aren’t rooting for Nevitt and the Sharks out of the NEC, you’re doing it wrong. Just look at him. He’s the perfect fullback in an age where fullbacks are not nearly as prevalent.
