COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) -- Want to assess former Missouri quarterback Chase Daniel's legacy? Look in the crib.
The Columbia Missourian says the name "Chase" has seen a surge of recent popularity in Missouri. The Social Security Administration's annual list of top baby names shows it jumped from Number 48 in 2007 to Number 7 one year later.
Chase Daniel Scott is among the newborns whose parents chose to honor the former Heisman Trophy finalist. He's the son of 2007 Missouri graduate Travis Scott of Independence and his wife, Kristin.
Travis Scott says they chose the name since "the entire roots of our relationship are based at Mizzou." They met while both worked at Memorial Union.
