At Augustana College, where gridiron theory is not part of the standard curriculum and the Heisman Trophy is discussed in purely theoretical terms, defensive back Dave Torri fits right in. Like most of coach Bob Reade's players, he was not heavily recruited out of high school. Of the few recruiters who did visit Torri in Danville, Ill., most expressed interest in his talents as a centerfielder on the baseball team.

Toward that end Torri has worked hard in the off-season to stay in top shape. To give himself an added challenge Torri and some friends joined 12,000 other contestants on July 25 for the Quad City Times Bix 7, a road race that winds through Davenport, Iowa. The results, unfortunately, were strictly Division III: He completed the seven miles in some 64 minutes, half an hour behind the winner. No matter. "It took us a while to get through the pack," says Torri goodnaturedly. "We did it just for fun." That says it all.
