I was a little ahead of you I'm sure. My freshman season was 1972 the year after they played for the national championship. I later worked in the athletic department at Henderson State for many years.

I was at Tech last week and had lunch at the Old Bank Sports Pub. They have a nice Eddie Meador display on the wall.

Without a doubt: Lance Alworth. Triple teamed. Great Speed, could leap and because he was at least double covered all the time made Gary Garrison look like Don Maynard.

Yes, you were ahead of me. I graduated in '95. I make it back there on occasion. I definitely need to make it there and check out the Meador display. It was a couple of years ago that I made the Tech-Rams connection. I had to reread the back of the card several times to make sure I was reading it correctly!

Steve Largent is my all time favorite player. I grew up in LA as a Rams fan (still am). I played WR as a kid and in high school and I never saw Largent drop a ball. He always seemed to create space with his routes and catch the ball even when he wasn’t open. Second favorite player is Marshall Faulk, an SDSU alum like myself. In my opinion he was the best all around running back ever.

Boy, that is a tough one. Do you go with a star player from today? A player from your childhood? A superstar legend you read about in a book?

As someone who really digs the early days of professional football, I guess I would go with Jim Thorpe.

I should say that, although Andre Tippett is my favorite player of all time and I do collect him, the player I’ve had the most fun collecting (and getting to know) is Gino Cappelletti.

I chuckled since only on this board would anyone have a remote chance of knowing what is meant by making “Gary Garrison look like Don Maynard!”

Great analogy for those of us who followed early 70’s FB!
OMG that is approaching 50 years ago...
