finally fulfilled the prophecy. He was chosen by the
Sports Writers Association of America to the 1968

be remembered as the back who surpassed Tom
Harmon in Michigan football anals. Besides break-
ing Harmon's records for total yards and rushing
attempts, he also broke Big Ten records such as
total points in a season with 92 and the national
record for single game rushing yardage with 347
against Wisconsin. The former of these records

was previously held by another Big Ten represent-
ative to the All-American squad, Leroy Keyes.
