I remember clearly, on one of the first scrimmage plays, that a rookie halfback was knocked cold trying to bring down Bill Osmanski. That play served as a valuable lesson for me. Whenever I ran with the ball, I had a picture in my mind of that back there on the ground, cold as a stone. I would run as fast as I could if there was any daylight.”
