Default Who played college football?

It's football season so if you, your son, your dad or other close relative (not my cousin's uncle's brother) played, like, got on the field during a game. Then post'em up. Not looking for stories like:

I was recruited. (You weren't recruited because you got letters in the mail.)
I was a stud but blew my knee.
I played semipro (No such thing. That's a pickup game on Saturday for guys that can't get past their HS glory days).

Burnadell, I know they didn't have cameras back them....and the leather helmets you wore explains a lot.

Here are my 3 generations.

Dad and uncle are in this pic of the goal line stand to win the conference championship at Henderson State University.

Me at Arkansas State University VS TX A&M. I'm the FS #9 in the pic and that's Roger Vick (Jets) and Rod Bernstein (Chargers) in the A&M backfield. They beat us pretty good but I had a pick against Kevin Murray until my DB hands betrayed me. BTW Murray shattered his leg against us the following year and it took a called back TD for them to beat us 22-21.

That's my son Ty, FS #41 SMU at second ranked Tx Tech. He dropped a pic in front of Crabtree (unfortunately he got my hands) but he did have 11 tackles, 1 caused fumble and 2 PBU's.

The closest I came was Charlie Jones (not a relelative) from Lemoore High School. He was a senior when I was a freshman. He wound up going to Fresno State and setting alot of receiving records. Drafted by the San Diego Chargers. Played a few years.

My brother QB/P verbally committed to Oklahoma State in 1988. Went on several recruiting visits and watched Barry Sanders play. OSU and coach Pat Jones couldn’t honor the offer because they were reprimanded by the NCAA and lost scholarships during the Hart Lee Dykes fiasco.

My brother signed his NLI with Ole Miss and shared a room with Chucky Mullins (RIP #38). After not getting any PT, he transferred to Troy State and started for 3 years. In 1993, Troy finished the regular season at 10-0-1 and was ranked #1. Troy lost to Marshall 24-21 in the 1AA playoff semi-finals.

My dad was the head coach at Marshall during Earl's SR season. He trucked them too like everyone else on the way to the State Title. I've still got the tape.

He also was the head coach at Hallsville when they played Burnadell at White Oak. I don't have tape but I think I have a stone table with a drawing of the game.

Well we could have been in the same back field. I was a tail back. Everytime I ran out on the field the coaches yelled Johnson get your tail back over here!

Was really an OT always wanted to carry or catch the ball. I got to touch it on 4th down being a deep snapper. Back in the day with no delay after the snap and you got deposited 3-4 yards on your arse everytime Worst licks I ever took were on special teams. They weren't so special!

Coached at two DIII Colleges and two JCs and from 83-05. Coached a lot of good players and people during that time. Never got to hunt those years much. Been coaching golf from 05 till now and its great! Been able to hunt the past 14 years. Been making up for lost time!!

Go Frogs!

Cousin is the eagles field goal kicker, Jake Elliott. Long story short, he was all state tennis player, scratch golfer, etc etc. Was kicking field goals with buddies in high school, football coach got wind of how good he was at it. First game, hits a 50 plus to win. Drafted by bengals, gets cut and picked up by philly...super bowl champs that year.

FYI, Carson Wentz is a big hunter.

The score was 0-0, and we both tied for district with no losses. That was before half the district made the playoffs; only the winner of the district advanced. Coaches flipped a coin to see who would represent the district in the playoffs. Hallsville won the coin toss and advanced, getting beat in semi-finals while we played basketball! Mike Barberís older brother was our star running back. He caught a pass from me and we thought he was going to score but was tackled by a shoestring tackle on the one yard line as the first half ended!!!

We still wonder what if we had won that coin toss!

Played DT at UMHB. 06,07,08,09 Won 4 rings. Lots of injuries shut me down.

Coaching now. Always knew I had the ability and have stayed in shape went to a tryout last spring, then signed and
came out of retirement to play arena ball. Did pretty well for a middle age white guy. Scored my first ever TD, and got invited to the international all star game!

Also had another surgery I think I'm finally able to close that chapter now.

But this last picture is what it's all about. Post game prayer with the kids after a good game.

Nope I drove the only truck on campus. Parked in maintanence parking the entire time I was there. I did get subpoenaed to appear in front of the NCAA infractions committee for a ridiculously trivial offense. Didnít own a suit so my ďboosterĒ bought me one to testify in. Oh the irony😎
