It was al Portagcvillc, Mo. On the first klekoff the ball came straight ns an arrow to me. Since I was nil end, and wasn't supposed to carry the ball, I hardly knew what to do -except run. And ran I did. I ran some BO yards for a touchdown. I don't recall anyone laying a hand on me. It would hnve Into) quite n runner to have caught me on that one. And I was scared to death. "Perhaps my next biggest thrill in sports, rivaling even that big moment In my first football game, did not come on the gridiron, or In track, it came out in the field while bird hunting. Oddly enough, It was on Dec. 7, Pearl Harbor Day. I was out quail hunting. My dog pointed and five birds came up.
