The Best No. 46 Jerseys To Rock At THON 2023

Fanny packs and tutus are sure to be staples in everyone’s THON fits this year, but what about switching things up with a classic jersey?

Whether you’re a sports junkie or just looking to spice up your fit on the concourse, we compiled some of the best No. 46 jerseys that you can rock. Who knows, maybe you’ll make a new friend during the wee hours of the night with your fly jersey choice.

Khalil Mack: University At Buffalo

Khalil Mack is more famous for showing off No. 52 for the Oakland Las Vegas Raiders, Chicago Bears, and Los Angeles Chargers, however, he did rock No. 46 in college with Buffalo.

It’s actually quite a funny story. Before Mack was selected fifth overall in the 2014 NFL draft, he received just one scholarship offer from the University at Buffalo. The NCAA Football video game franchise actually gave Mack just a 46 overall rating. Mack took it personally and made No. 46 his number, so he would never forget where he came from.

Mack has since become an NFL Defensive Player of the Year and is a seven-time Pro Bowler. In the past season with the Los Angeles Chargers, Mack tallied 50 tackles along with eight sacks.

Tim McDonald: San Francisco 49ers

Tim McDonald was drafted in the second round by the St. Louis/Phoenix Cardinals back in 1987. However, he is more famously known for his six-year tenure with the San Francisco 49ers.

With the 49ers, McDonald won Super Bowl XXIX and played in three Pro Bowls. In his 13-year career, McDonald hauled in 40 interceptions and even scored four touchdowns of his own.

Following his player days, McDonald was a defensive backs coach for Fresno State, New York Jets, and Buffalo Bills.

Bo Outlaw: Phoenix Suns

Charles “Bo” Outlaw was a 6’8″ NBA power forward and center combo known for his rebounding and tenacious defense. In his 14-year career, Outlaw played for the Los Angeles Clippers, Orlando Magic, Memphis Grizzlies, and the Phoenix Suns. However, he only rocked No. 46 for the Suns.

Although he may not be well known to many, he still got a shoutout from famous street poet, Gucci Mane in his song, “Hold Dat Thought,” when he raps, “Catch me on the rebound, like Bo Outlaw.”

If that isn’t a good enough reason to rock an Outlaw jersey on the concourse, we really don’t know what is.

Jay Murphy: Los Angeles Clippers

The greatest Clipper to ever rock No. 46 was none other than Jay Murphy. That may be because he was the only person bold enough to rock such a great number, but nonetheless, it still counts!

Murphy played just two seasons with the Clippers, and although he didn’t put up the greatest numbers, he will forever be remembered for reppin’ 46.

John Konchar: Memphis Grizzlies

We have our first current player, folks!

The Memphis Grizzlies signed John Konchar to a two-way contract after going undrafted in the 2019 NBA Draft. After a few successful games, including his first-ever triple-double in April 2022, Konchar signed a three-year $19 million deal this past offseason.

Konchar played in 49 games so far this season and is averaging about six points and five boards per game. Support the young fella and the kids with a No. 46 Grizzlies jersey!

David Krejci: Boston Bruins

David Krejci was drafted out of the Czech junior leagues by the Boston Bruins in 2006, but Krejci didn’t break out until the 2008-2009 season. He tallied his first hat trick early in the season and was later nicknamed “The Matrix” by the Bruins’ play-by-play team.

Krejci would eventually win the Stanley Cup with Boston in the 2010-2011 season in which he led the playoffs with 12 goals, 23 points, and four game-winning goals. In 2013, Krejci was named the alternative captain and continued to play for the Bruins until the end of the 2020-2021 season.

Krejci returned home and signed with HC Olomouc, a Czech hockey club. However, a year later, he returned to the Bruins and played in his 1,000th career game on January 16, 2023, where he tallied three assists in a 6-0 win against the Philadelphia Flyers.

Darren Bravo: Trinbago Knight Riders

We’re getting weird now.

We don’t know a lot about cricket, but we do know that Darren Bravo proudly rocks No. 46. The left-handed batsman is quite the journeyman as he has played for seven different squads in his 15-year career. Bravo has also played in three Cricket World Cups and was named the Cricketer of the Year at the WIPA/WICB Awards for the 2013 season.

Bravo to you if you rock a cricket jersey on the concourse this weekend.

Maxime Latour: Toronto Argonauts

Finally, the GOAT. Maxime Latour is a professional Canadian long snapper for the Toronto Argonauts. He first signed with the Montreal Alouettes after failing to be drafted in 2018 but was eventually cut and found himself on the Argonauts after their long-snapper suffered a season-ending injury. Latour then resigned from Toronto in August 2022.

In his personal life, Latour started a farming business in Orford, Quebec, with his friend during the COVID-19 pandemic.
