    "I received a full athletic scholarship In 1959 and co-captained the first freshman football team. In the spring of 1963, an injury to my rotary cuff worsened. Many things were tried by the staff, including wearing a specially designed halter. This limited by right arm's capacity to raise above a certain level. Even this this didn't work very long. I missed my entire senior season...very disappointing. I discover that fame is fleeting, that life goes on. I did go on to graduate with honors."

    "During my freshman year, the team roster was composed of 13 "baby bucs." I was the only one to received a full athletic scholarship. The following year, the two that remained made the varsity team. In 1963, an injury to my rotary cuff worsened. Many things were tried by the staff, including wearing a specially designed halter. This limited by right arm's capacity to raise above a certain level. Even this this didn't work very long. I missed my entire senior season...very disappointing. I discover that fame is fleeting but life must goes on. I did graduate with honors."
