  • Correcting the record

    the record
    To the Editor: I was very humbled when contacted by Mr. Shug Haigler several months ago about  a "Where Are They Now" sports article.  We had a great conversation which I enjoyed tremendously.  However, having just read the article, I felt the need to clarify the title.  I did play quarterback and also punted for Central  during the 1978 season.  I did make all region my senior year but as a punter and not quarterback.  It would be an injustice to all the "great" Eagle
