Sam Graddy ran the best Fly Pattern in the history of the game. He was drafted by the Broncos in the '87 draft and won Gold & Silver medals in the '84 Olympics. He finished 2nd to Carl Lewis in the 100m and won Gold running the 1st leg of the 4 x 100. He could absolutely fly!
Would have been great if they had still allowed allowed the sticky stuff.

Wow. He’s a legend. How come most of us have never heard of this guy?
haven't studied the history of Tennessee athletics.. go to library and get some books about UT..
Just like youngsters of all generations, they just don’t listen
VOLS have many sport’s heroes, how about a receiver named Larry S. who was a VOL super star ! I was there, Conridge, Willie

Gault and Miller. Chip Kell, I think. Football and track for all three, oh, and Richmond Flowers. Didn't one of the McDonalds play fb and baseball?
IIRC, Justin Gatlin got a very brief look at WR or Returns. But, it didn't workout for him outside of track.
