Malcolm Savage (born June 30, 2024) is an American football quarterback for the New York Silverbacks of the ISFL. He played college football for North Dakota State before declaring for the 2045 DSFL Draft where he was selected by the Norfolk Seawolves. He was drafted by the Austin Copperheads in the first round of the Season 31 ISFL Draft but was traded a season later to the New York Silverbacks.
Malcolm Savage was born on June 30, 2025 to a single mother, Marsha Savage. Growing up on the west side of Bloomington, Malcolm became known as a bit of a troublemaker. He found himself stealing other kids' bikes and dumping them into 9 mile creek. He eventually was caught in the act and was charged with a misdemeanor. The officer spoke with Malcolm's mother and tipped her off about getting her son into sports to keep him busy and off the streets. She took that to heart and enrolled her son in a summer football camp. Once he stepped onto that field, Malcolm fell in love with the game.
Being a young scrawny kid he gravitated to the backfield early on. He was quick on his feet and wasn't afraid to throw out some hits. As he grew older, he began to fill out his frame and skyrocketed to a staggering 6 foot 4 inches in height and 195 pounds. Seeing the potential of his stature, his high school coach decided to move Malcolm from the backfield to the pocket. He was very raw having been used to catching passes instead of throwing them. The one thing he had already was his legs. He was quick across the line when the pocket collapsed. He had elite speed and awareness which certainly attracted the attention of collegiate scouts. He would not receive offers from high level schools and instead took his talents across state lines to North Dakota State.
Savage started his time at North Dakota State on the bench as the team's backup quarterback. He took that time to get acquainted with the playbook since he was scheduled to take up the starting job the following season. Savage was fortunate enough to take a few snaps in blowout games. His arm was still raw, but he used his legs to great success. This was a sign of good things to come. In his second season with the squad, he was promoted to the starting role with the previous starter moving on from the team. He performed well and showed off some flair with his arm, throwing for over 11 yards on average per completion. He was no slouch either in the running game as he managed to find the endzone a total of 6 times. Unfortunately, in the second to last game of the regular season Savage was removed from the game with a foot contusion and would miss the rest of the season and playoffs. With time off during the summer, Savage worked to improve his perception and accuracy since a good number of balls were getting away from him during games. He stormed the field in his junior season and let the Bison to the FCS championship game where they lost in heartbreaking fashion. He looked at his two solid seasons as a starter and decided to declare for the DSFL draft following his junior year.
