The Mercury Man is in a class by himself.
After reading your article in SCORECARD "A Good-Sized Back" (Nov. 4) I feel compelled to tell you of our football team's exploits against 415-pound Carlton (Tiny Tim) Vaughn and company.
We, the Northside Bobcats of Gretna, Va., played Central High School on Nov. 1 for homecoming. Vaughn did not play the whole left side of the defensive line by himself, nor were we afraid to run to his side. Raleigh James—our offensive tackle, who is a sophomore—played head to head against Vaughn all afternoon, allowing him a grand total of two tackles. We went on to win the game by a score of 26-13, and all I can say is that by the end of the game Tiny Tim's "earthquake trot" had turned into the stunned stagger.
