Some players become famous during their three to six years playing college football. They blaze their own trail and make a surname—Manziel or McCarron, for example—something that will live in NCAA lore for the foreseeable future.

For others, however, a path has already been blazed. A famous surname isn't something they make, it's something they live up to; the expectations are branded in their DNA.

Seven of the following nine players are like that: sons of football-playing or -coaching fathers who have given them an acute biological advantage. The exceptions are even cooler—the sons of icons in the acting or music worlds.

Having a famous father doesn't ensure the child's success. Nothing can ensure that. What it does ensure, however, is the one thing most 18-year-olds would kill for.

An immediate national spotlight.
