… in 1954


I was there. In the end zone and near the TD.


What a great day for Hogs. Preston used to stay with me in HSV during our Razorback tournament and he was quite a guy. He and his brother,Lou. had a lot of great stories about playing for the Browns and Packers. I think Preston played for 13 or 14 years in the NFL.

Paul Brown said Preston was actually the prototype of the TE position.
He, I think, was drafted as a RB but moved to TE and was the best in the league for a time.

My first Razorback game. Went with my Dad. I was 6 and been following the Hogs ever since


I recall now, Preston was the TB for a year but a guy named Brown was drafted the next year and Preston moved to TE.
