That was the extent of his schoolwork for the day, and nothing much to do till football practice started he said, t 4 o'clock. "Now Monday," "that's a tough day. I go to three classes." Warren is a major in Communication & Arts at the University of Houston. He also represents a major sociological project for the University because bled Houston Astrodome, on national television, Warren fumbled the ball four times. Now he looked back and explained, "I was so lonely when I came back to school that year, you couldn't believe it. I'm very close to my family, I really miss them, even now that I'm a senior. . "Besides, the''coach sprayed our arms and.hands with some kind of stuff that was supposed to make the ball stick. And I don't like to use anything like that. I don't wear sweat bands or use any stuff like that to JGCL 1UI nit; ujuvciaii.j' UL.V.UUUW «• —"« — >v he had played, by the help me. All I do is tape my end of October, consecutive --'•'-- ""'•"" football games at Starkville, Miss., and University, Miss. Warren is a Negro. That in itself is not unique. There are five other Negroes on the Houston traveling squad. Warren is different because he's the most exciting collegiate running back in the United States. (0. J. Simpson of the University of Southern California is merely sensational.) You know he's different when you sit with him on a concrete slab in the inner court of the where a huge metal sculpture dominates the scene of student traffic at the noon hour, and a blond kid in a brown sport coat, with a notebook under his arm, stops McVea for his autograph. McVea signs it for him, twice, and under the little "c" he puts two horizontal and then two verticle lines, an idiosyncrasy of his grade school days. "You gonna kill 'em this weekend, man," says the kid. "I sure hope so," nods Warren. McVea came to the University of Houston in the fall of 1964 as the most fabulous player in the history of Texas high school football. In his first varsity game a year later, in the fa ankles lightly. "Since then, I fumbled only once all last year, and I haven't fumbled Ihis year, yel." Mainly, Warren hasn't fumbled because nol many lacklers hit him squarely. In his third varsity year, he has averaged more than 10 yards for every time he has touched the ball, either as a pass receiver or running from scrimmage. He isn't blatantly cocky about his achievements. He recognizes his talents. "I iook to he movies of me," he said, "and I see moves that I don't realize I made. I don't copy anybody. -I have moves nobody else has. They're ne." For the interested visitor, there's a screen and projector already set up in a big room off the lobby of the athletic department building, and film clips of McVea ready to run off. They show him blazing to three long touchdown runs against Michigan State in an early season victory that stunned college football. The McVea 'lanker .when he gets to pro- 'essional football. When Houston lost to North Carolina State in an upset, McVea was on sidelines the last three quarters. He had bruised lis left shoulder colliding with Dennis Byrd, an All-American defensive tackle for N. C. State. "The guys were, pressing a little bit," he said. "TSiey were trying to block harder when 1 was oul of the game. They know with me, they jusl got to get in Ihe way of the other guy, and I'll do Ihe rest." The words sound like bragging, but not the way he said it. McVea is conscious of his slatus on campus as an All- American. He lives in the athlete's dormitory, bul he has his own room. He also drives a pale blue Buick Riviera, not Ihe average car for the average college student. How could he afford it? . "I had a good summer job," he said, smiling.broadly. . Warren is the baby in a family of six boys and three girls, his father is in the construclion business business in San Antonio. None of the other five boys ever played football. "My mother," he said, "told an interviewer that God saved all the talent for me." Warren implicity found no argument with the statement.
