Updated personal notes for John Semian
Edited the personal notes for John Semian.
  • Added trivia: "Jake also played linebacker on defence. He intercepted a pass against Alabama in 1959. He was running for a touchdown before passing out at the Alabama 18 yardline. In the excitement about playing against Bear Bryant, Jake forgot to breath. The Cougars got to the 13 yardline and missed the fieldgoal attempt. They lost 3 to 0. Jake's interception is mentioned in Bear Bryant's book. "
  • Added nicknames: "Jake"
