I think I have told this story before on a thread but it is fun to recount.
I went to another HS that was in the PCL, and played football against Gavin's father, Keith.
I take honor in the fact that I got trucked by Keith. I will never forget the play (42 dive). I was the tail back and he was a DT I think. He steamrolled me right when I hit the gap. I was about 3/4 speed. Felt like he came out of nowhere, and I saw stars.
Yes. Our schools were so small (probably still are) that we played both O and D.
In my defense, though, I do have to say that I ran for some decent yards - usually away from Keith...ha.
