Evans is one of
those guys who
can send chills
down the spine
of everyone
around him. Yet
Evans' mouth
rarely moves; he
lets his steely
eyes do much of
the talking.
Most of the
time his stare
says, "What the
hell are you
looking at?"
In his rookie
season, Evans
was practicing
with New York
Giants fullback
Jarrod Bunch,
then a fellow
frosh. Bunch,
only slightly Evans plays v
smaller than
Evans, had his same mannerisms.
Inevitably, people compared
the two, a comparison to which"
Evans took offense. "I don't look
like nobody," he would insist to
anyone who brought up the
subject.
One day, Bunch glanced over
and sized up his counterpart.
"We were looking at each

by Theodore Cox
"Bunch was looking at it as
'You'll get your chance, too, I'll
get to see what you can do. Can
you hit me?"'
But all Evans knew was that
Bunch was looking at him funny.
So he threw down his helmet and
got ready to fight. Bunch just
laughed at the uptight newcomer.
Since then, the two have become
friends. When Bunch signed his
contract with the Giants in July,
Evans was one of the first people
he called.
"It's funny now because I
respect him," Evans said. "He's a
guy with a good level head."
The 1987 incident left Evans
with a reputation of arrogance.
"I was no smiles. Everyone
thought I had a chip on my
shoulder," Evans said. "It wasn't

that I had a chip on my shoulder,
it was just that I had nothing to
smile about."
Certainly today no one would
describe Evans' demeanor as
chipper, but his arrogance is now
regarded as confidence.
"You're not going to knock him
off the ball," Michigan defensive
line coach Tom Reed said. "He's
the strongest man we have on the
defensive team, maybe the
strongest man on the whole team,
leverage-wise."
At one time, the Michigan
coaches labeled Evans' side of the
line the "weak side." It was a title
he never minded. The more teams
ran at him, the more tackles he
could make; last season, he made
46 of them, the third-highest
Wolverine total. He also tied for
the Big Ten lead in sacks with
seven.
Because of Evans' improve-
ment since his first year, Michigan
has no weak side on the defensive
line this year. Evans now plays
with the experience of 18 straight
starts.
"He has worked extremely
hard to put himself in position to
do some outstanding things,"
Michigan coach Gary Moeller said.
Evans' past explains a lot about
his tough, often stubborn exterior.
Evans' climb began in the U.S.
Virgin Islands, where he was born.
When he was 11, his parents
separated and his mother moved
to Boston with her children. The
oldest of seven children (five
brothers and one sister), Evans
