Judging by the picture above it would be pretty hard to confuse Auburn pass rusher, Dee Ford, for a middle aged English woman.
But by the power of Twitter, and a shared name, anything is possible.
The recent star performer in the 2014 Super Bowl shares his name with a commercial property surveyor in England, and with both individuals sharing similar Twitter handles as well, fans of the Auburn football star have been inundating the confused female Ford with tweets of praise.
@dee_ford_ had an exceptional performance in the Senior Bowl leading to @dee_ford receiving hundreds of "WAR DAMN EAGLE" messages - an unsettling prospect for someone who admits to having no clue about college football.
Speaking to the War Eagle Reader she explained the misunderstanding:
"It went really mad this weekend.
"But it had gone a bit mad a couple of weeks back when Dee himself tweeted his address wrong so I was getting odd followers for him and everyone telling me what a great singer I was," she told the newspaper.
And after Auburn athletic director Jay Jacobs included her Twitter handle in a tweet of congratulations aimed at the football star the issues only increased.
Luckily the English native seems amused by the whole situation and has taken up Auburn as her adopted team - sending a picture to the War Eagle reader of her making the Auburn 'A' hand sign.
