A we need his blocking size and his Power. I him play in one College game and he can certainly carry the Ball. There a not much question about that.

Cappadona whose two year contract would just about cover Joe Namath a income tax deduction was As unperturbed by the remarks As he had been by rival tacklers. He has after All planned to play professional football since he was in the seventh Grade.
