    Incredible athlete. This guy could have been an Olympian and possibly medaled has he chosen to concentrate on track.
    An assistant coach at Splendora told me he once convinced the head coach to line him up at tailback in a district game. The first time he touched the ball he ran 40 yards for a score. Not sure if he played tailback much after that.
    Eleven years in the league.

    Not sure, but here’s the bigger question. Have we had any players wear negative numbers? Because we may have to do that. LOL.
