A player can be dedicated to his sport and his team without having to jeopardize his health. It takes more guts to stand up and say, "That's enough," than it does to be Mr. Toughguy and play with an injury that could cause permanent damage.
The story of John Frank was sad. He appears to be self-centered and to have a lot of false pride. He doesn't understand pro football. It's a business: When you get hurt, no one is going to cry for you.

DAVIS & DAVIS
William Nack's article on Ernie Davis (A Life Cut Short, Sept. 4) was a marvelous tribute to an outstanding individual. In your Nov. 2, 1959, issue you featured the Syracuse football team in an article entitled Orange Hell on Piety Hill. The opening picture had Syracuse All-America guard Roger Davis leading Ernie Davis on a sweep. May we see it again?
