Travis Fulgham, Oshane Ximines look to keep making history for ODU in NFL Draft

Travis Fulgham, Oshane Ximines look to keep making history for ODU in NFL Draft

Travis Fulgham and Oshane Ximines put Old Dominion on the college football map with their stunning upset of Virginia Tech in 2018, their invitations to the Senior Bowl (the first in school history) and Old Dominion’s first bowl game win. 

This week, they have the chance for another check on that storied list: Being the first players from Old Dominion to have their names called at the NFL Draft. 

But their roads to Old Dominion couldn’t have been more different.

Fulgham, the son of diplomats, lived around the world before walking onto Old Dominion, hoping for a chance to impress the coaches. Ximines committed to Old Dominion and stuck with it, despite being highly recruited from bigger programs his senior year. 

“He could have gone somewhere else, but he stuck with his commitment,” Old Dominion coach Bobby Wilder said in NBC Sports Washington’s ‘I Am The Prospect’. 

Ximines is now slated to go No. 59 to the Indianapolis Colts in the latest edition of the NBC Sports Washington mock draft.  Fulgham, as the Virginia Tech team learned with his game last season, isn’t one to sleep on either. 

Ximines, who threw out the first pitch at a minor league baseball game this week, told News 3 WTKR that he was just trying to stay relaxed heading into the big event.

"Half the time I just have to be like Shane just relax man, we've been working our whole life for this, he told the TV station. “I'm going to be on a whole new football team come August, and I'm going to be in a camp."

His college coach’s advice to his pro prospects was simple.

“Just do what you’ve done over your career at Old Dominion,” Wilder told them. “And you’ll be fine.”

Donovan McNabb says he deserves Hall of Fame just like Troy Aikman

Donovan McNabb says he deserves Hall of Fame just like Troy Aikman

Troy Aikman got into the Pro Football Hall of Fame on the first ballot in 2006.

Former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb has never even been a finalist for the Pro Football Hall of Fame in the 12 years since he retired. But he believes he should already have a bust in Canton.

“I am a hall of famer. My numbers speak for themselves,” McNabb told TMZ this week. “My numbers are better than Troy Aikman.”

McNabb is not totally wrong: McNabb finished his career with 37,276 passing yards, 234 passing touchdowns and 117 career interceptions. Aikman had 32,942 yards, 165 TDs and 141 INTs. McNabb had an 85.6 QB rating compared to 81.6 for Aikman.

But the two numbers that set them apart are three and zero. Aikman has three Super Bowl victories under his belt, and McNabb has zero.

Aikman played twelve consecutive seasons as the starter for the Dallas Cowboys and was a six-time Pro Bowl selection, led the team to three Super Bowl victories and was the MVP of Super Bowl XXVII.

McNabb has never been an NFL MVP, and he has never won a Super Bowl. So though McNabb's stats are better in some respects, there's a reason why he has never been a first-ballot choice to become a Hall of Famer.
