If your name was two parts cool and one part normal, what would you do?

Live with your name and the fact that everybody would be thinking "if only that one part wasn't there" your whole life? Yes, probably. And in time, you'd probaby think your whole name was cool. Because it was your name. And you're cool.

That wasn't good enough for Lion King Conaway, an Eastern Michigan recruit who decided to take actions and drop one of his names. 

Bet you can't guess which one.
