"You'll have to watch that boy," said Mr. Boshart. "He's lazy."
"It's the sure sign of a good competitor," said McKinney. "He's strong, like Dave there. In fact, he looks just like Dave did when he came to Wake Forest. I understand that he's quite a creative athlete."
"I saw him go 50 yards for a touchdown once," said Mr. Boshart, "and he looked like he was just coasting. Four or five schools said they wanted him just for football."
"Well, let's not spread that around," said McKinney.
"Jim told me of all the trips he'd made and all the people he'd met there was none he liked better than Coach McKinney," said Mr. Boshart.
" ' Coach McKinney, he's the greatest' is what he kept saying over and over," said Mrs. Boshart.
Before very much longer, there was a gathering around the coffee table on the porch and Jim Boshart signed a Wake Forest grant-in-aid.
"I'm real proud of this," said McKinney. "I can assure you he'll be happy from the day he arrives."
"Don't forget," said Mr. Boshart, "I don't want him to play football."
"You don't have a thing to worry about," said McKinney.
