Football Trivia: my past

At 2:40-2:47 into this clip, watch no. 34 getting swarmed by the Notre Dame defense. This is Rodney Lee of Georgia Tech: he was a junior high teammate and on the varsity in 1974 when I was on the JV. Yes, I’ve tackled him one on one a few times (during scrimmages) though it would be more accurate to say that he tripped while running me over.

One summer, toward the end of summer, he came into the weight room when I was lifting. I had my max bench press weight on the bar. He said “Hey Ollie, what are you doing?” and I explained the bench press. He had never done one before. He took my max and just blasted it…easily. &^%$#!!
