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.

Early years

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.

College career

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.

Joining the Norfolk Seawolves there was not much pressure on the back of Savage. The team was decidedly not very good and have been in turmoil since they last won the Ultimini. Being a rookie quarterback, his struggles showed. He was already throwing significantly more than he did in college. His ground game just could not keep up with the competition on defense at this level as he only managed 260 rushing yards through the full season. The team struggled with their lieu of rookie talent that was still marinating, finishing with a pitiful 3-11 record. Luckily enough that was not the worst record in the league so the team spared themselves from the ultimate humiliation of last place. Savage had honed in his passing skills as the season went on and with his young receivers also developing, they pulled out some fantastic performances along the way including dealing the only loss to the champion Grey Ducks, something the team would see very often.


The second season was the best in Savage's developmental league career. With the team coming off of another season of struggles, the now sophomores took matters into their own hands. Savage would be a menace to anyone who dared step on the field with him. The season would start out rough with the team pulling in only one win in their first four games. What happened next would shock the entirety of the league. Norfolk went on an insane tear in the final 10 games of the season, winning 8 of them and scoring an average of over 33 points per game and only giving up 25. Savage would have his best performance of his career in week 11 of the season against the Kansas City Coyotes. He would pass for 343 yards on 24 completions and notched 5 touchdowns against his class rival quarterback, Carter Knight, winning the game 42-30. The team would finish 9-5 and make the playoffs off of a win and in final game of the season. The team lost in the first round to the eventual champion Dallas Birddogs in overtime that came off of a Savage pick at their own 20 yard line. A heartbreaking loss but the deed was done. Savage would go on to win the DSFL Offensive Performance of the Year, Quarterback of the Year, and Most Valuable Player awards that season. He was rewarded for his efforts by being a first round draft selection by the Austin Copperheads.


Coming off of his MVP campaign, Savage came out the gate firing, scoring 15 passing touchdowns to only 3 interceptions in his first 4 games of the season. The defense backed him up all the way through the season, leading to dominant victories. While he may have been riding high early, the struggles made their way out of the woodwork soon enough. In his next 5 games, Savage would pass for only 4 touchdowns and threw an abysmal 9 interceptions. The team went 3-2 in that stretch despite the struggles of their signal caller. The defense was just that good that season. The team would win out the rest of the season, finishing on top of the league at 12-2. The Seawolves were on their way to another run at the playoffs. In the first round they faced their division rival Tijuana Luchadores and pounced on them for a 40-20 victory, sending them to their first Ultimini appearance in 8 seasons. They would face the Portland Pythons in an instant classic. Portland lead at the end of the first half but Norfolk would lead going into the fourth quarter. Portland would quickly tie the game but a field goal and touchdown would bring the Seawolves just ahead. After a touchdown by Portland and a quick 3 and out by Norfolk, the Pythons were at midfield with just 19 seconds to play. Two broken up passes and one incomplete would seal the deal and Norfolk walked away with their second championship in team history. Savage would fall short in the awards voting that season and was eventually traded to New York for the season MVP Live LaughLove.

Savage would find himself called up this season and would make his ISFL debut for the defending champion New York Silverbacks. He had some big shoes to fill with longtime franchise QB Sam Howitzer hanging up the cleats. He brought a different skillset to the field as compared to his predecessor. His greatest asset was his legs and he utilized them throughout his time in the developmental leagues. All of his skills were put on display in his first professional start against the Hahalua. Savage threw for 280 yards on 24 completions for 2 touchdowns. He also managed to score a touchdown on the ground as well with a blistering 63 yard run to close out the third quarter. The rest of the season did not fair well for Savage as his struggles as a rookie were ever apparent. He finished with the worst completion percentage of any passer and had the worst QBR at 80.3. He was the only rookie quarterback to miss the playoffs. His two direct classmates finished as division winners. Luckily none of them won the Ultimus in their first season but he will always be compared to his peers and right now, it is not looking promising for the young signal caller.
