RE:::Do you guys want to play for MH? Yes or No

The power of purpose.

Remember Leander Green❓ What he did

At UNC.. against Lawrence Taylor!!

The Pirates came even closer in 1979. Only a Jeff Hayes field goal in the closing seconds kept East Carolina from posting a win. The game ended in a 24-24 tie.

That was a North Carolina team with Lawrence Taylor, Buddy Curry, Donnell Thompson (all future NFL stars) and Amos Lawrence, the school’s all-time leading rusher.
For a team led by Leander Green to nearly take down a team led by LT, maybe says something about the power of purpose.


In the week leading up to the Pirate-Tar Heel season opener in 1981, a couple of strangers were spotted in the UNC Law School Library, which overlooks the football practice field. Asked for ID, the pair fled the building and drove off. The license plate was traced to an eastern North Carolina dealership known to provide courtesy cars for ECU coaches. Folks in Chapel Hill accused ECU of spying.

If there was football espionage, Emory never acknowledged it. And it certainly didn’t help the Pirates that day. North Carolina scored touchdowns by the truckload in the game’s first 25 minutes. At intermission, one down east reporter went around telling friends, “Did you hear, they fired the spies at halftime!”

Kelvin Bryant scored six touchdowns as the Tar Heels won 56-0.

My point :: takes the right kids to mix,blend, Jell to what Logan called a TEAM
