    You should also have a conversation with Reggie Oliver, who in 1970 was the QB at Marshall University the year after the school’s team was killed in the worst sports disaster in US history. Four of Reggie’s teammates from Druid High School in Tuscaloosa, AL perished. Because Freshmen couldn’t play at the time, he wasn’t on the plane. He was portrayed not so accurately in the movie “We Are Marshall.”

    Reggie was also signed by the Dallas Cowboys as a QB, but was cut in favor of Danny White who could punt. If you’re interested in talking with him, you can contact me at and I will forward you contact info.
