It was 1967, a crisp autumn morning, late in a scoreless football game. The quarterback for Southern High School took the snap at his 10-yard line, backpedaled, then fired a pass over the middle -- straight into the washboard stomach of linebacker Tim Brannan. Built like an oil furnace, the all-star junior for Archbishop Curley High School put his head down, thanked God for the interception, and started moving forward, one step at a time. Southern players mobbed him, piled up on his back, dove at his legs, clawed at his helmet.
