n.— «As we annihilated team after team in my senior year, I did get to play quite a bit. Referred to as a “non-er” (short for non-athlete) by my teammates, I mostly played special teams, but some blowouts were so bad the coaches couldn’t completely ignore me. I remember playing an entire quarter at middle linebacker in a 69-0 game.» —“In search of gridiron redemption” by Matt Tuthill Bennington Banner (Vermont) Apr. 7, 2007.
