Tony Fein is way more than just the originator of the ‘Fins Up’ and the initial inventor of the Landshark Defense. Fein played for Ole Miss football for 2 seasons after taken off 3 and a half years to go on active duty overseas during Operation Iraqi Freedom. Fein, out of Port Orchard, Washington found his way to Ole Miss and played middle linebacker for the Rebels in 2007 and 2008.
In 2007 Fein recorded 84 total tackles which ranked second on the Rebels defense that season. However Fein had 50 solo tackles which led the defense. Fein also had 3 TFL on a season in which only played 11 games. In 2008 Fein’s numbers dropped some but as the leader on the defense he still recorded 50 tackles with 24 solo and 5 TFL on the season. Of course, Fein is honored by ‘Tony the Landshark’ as the new on-field mascot for the Rebels.
