Imagine being inches away from Franco Harris during The Immaculate Reception. Or on the field for The Longest Game Ever. Or on camera for one of the most famous “mic’d up” shoots in NFL Films history. Or throwing 7 touchdowns in a single game. Now imagine doing all of it, and you have “The Forrest Gump of Football” — who, oh by the way, was also a college All–American that competed against the great Doak Walker.
