The lives—and the accompanying perks—of professional football players have been well documented in the social media era, particularly on Instagram (which is perhaps the most visual of the various social platforms at our disposal). However, generally speaking, college football players haven’t had the opportunity to floss on IG in quite the same manner. And in a way, it makes sense—collegiate athletes have to sometimes think twice about oversharing and have to follow more strict guidelines so as to not infringe upon the countless sanctions that the NCAA could potentially levy on them, thus jeopardizing their eligibility and their future in pro sports. With that said, that doesn’t change the fact that college football is brimming with strong personalities that like to do their fair share of stunting, whether it’s on the field or on social media.
Where watching a college football game on Saturday only gives you an idea of what players are like on the field, Instagram provides an added insight into what it’s like to be a collegiate athlete playing at the D-1 level. Think about it—college players may not get paid, but those who go to schools like UCLA and the University of Hawaii get perks in other forms.
Taking a break from the action-packed season, we put together a list of college football players that are stuntin’ on Instagram in every way possible. These guys are no slouches on the football field either. Here are 10 College Football Players That Are Flourishing on Instagram.
