Desmond, I never saw you play at Rhodes and wish I had! am jealous of your opportunity to continue to play. I hope it is a awesome experience for you.

I play defense end 74-78, and was a co-captain for the 77 season which was the winningest season in the colleges′ history. My sister, class of 79, married one of my teammates, Tom Mullady, Tom played tight end for the NY Giants, 80-86.

Best of luck to you in the coming season!
