Extra Points: Notre Dame Memories

A veteran scout on the Philadelphia Eagles staff wandered into the press room at Veteran's Stadium on the second day of the 1972 NFL Draft. Ray Didinger of The Philadelphia Bulletin approached Charlie Gauer as he looked at the draft board and asked if there were any prospects in the bunch. "Naw, bunch of stiffs," Gauer said. "Except the linebacker from North Carolina. He can play. I scouted him. He's not perfect. He's not that big. But he's a good football player." (Tar Heel Blue)
