Su'a Cravens Uses Moniker At Starbucks After Mishap

Football players really do have the same problems as everyone else.

In an interview with CSN Mid-Atlantic on Monday, Su'a Cravens revealed he has just recently gotten into coffee. But confusion at Starbucks with how to spell his name when ordering his weekly venti white chocolate mocha, has led him to adjust his moniker to something much more simple.

"I don't tell them my real name because the last time I told my Starbucks my real name, they spelled it Suwqua. Then when she read my name she goes 'Sewer,'" the 2016 second-round draft pick said.

"So for now on I just put Chris. Yeah, so (when I hear) 'white chocolate mocha for Chris', I'm like, here's your guy."

The linebacker's chocolate inclinations don't end with his coffee.

Cravens also shared that his pre-game ritual, which he tributes to his former teammate at USC, Michael Hutchings, involves two cups of hot chocolate and a comedy movie the night before.

Whether or not he will change up his routines once he gets into his first season with the Redskins is to be determined, but one thing he will certainly be adding to his itinerary is a chance to get an even better view of Washington D.C.

"I haven't had enough time to explore," Cravens said. I mean I've obviously seen all the monuments and things like that. … but I haven't seen everything though."
