The Salukis’ diminutive senior-to-be running back has a different personality from the typical college student on social media, and he uses the medium to be refreshingly, unapologetically himself.

The junior pole vaulter uses Twitter to express her fandom for her fellow student-athletes, showing that Saluki athletics is one big family.

2. Saluki volleyball players

SIU volleyball players are fun to follow, especially if you follow them all. Being able to see replies between junior libero/defensive specialist Gabriell Shepard (@gabshepard) and junior middle hitter Alex Rosignol (@ARosignol) lets you see the teammates tease each other and gives you updates on the team rabbit, Charlie.

The Saluki junior running back blows up Twitter feeds with a little bit of everything — some of his tweets are inspirational, some are relatable and some are funny. Make sure you pay attention to the handles in your feeds, as he changes his account name like he changes socks.
