Pistol Pete was the best athlete I ever saw. Teams tripled teamed him and he still scored 40.
H. Walker the best football player. Only reason Georgia won that natty.
Bobby Majors was the best I ever played against in HS and the best VFL imho
Where did you play at? He played at least one year at my high school, Castle Heights, but he graduated the year before I got there. Incredible all around athlete from the record books.
Was 1st Team All Mid-South ( conference of private schools, mostly military, that allowed 1 post-graduate year) in 4 sports. Most of the football PG players were pure mercenary. They typically came from small towns and were looking for exposure to attract college recruiters. They typically disappeared after the last game of the year, but there were some who came and stayed.
The conference had incredible athletes, Big John Hannah, one of the greatest OL of all times went to Baylor in Chattanooga as did Roscoe Tanner the tennis player who played in the Wimbleton finals and had the fastest serve of his time. Baylor and McCallie were the high end because of all the Coca-Cola and Lookout Mountain money. But it was known that Majors was the best of them all.
His one man take down of Penn State in 1971 (a team that had Jack Ham, Franco Harris and Lydell Mitchell among others) is must see viewing for any Vol fan.
Oh and if it had been Majors and not a freshman Bill Bates that hit Herschel Walker, he would have gone down. One thing about those Majors boys, there was never any quit in them.
