The nickname given to Tennessee Volunteers quarterback Nick Stephens, a red-headed gunslinger from Texas. The name was first used by Holly, a college football blogger who writes for Yahoo!, Every Day Should Be Saturday, and her own personal blog, Snarkastic. It was later picked up by Oskie, a contributor of the college football blog 3rd Saturday in Blogtober, to refer to the ginger-haired quarterback.
Last week during a workout, the Ginger Avenger slipped and broke his wrist when he tried to catch himself.
