I was already a fan of the Hurons, I mean Eagles. Both my parents and my older Brother all went there. I was at U of M, but spent half my time in Ypsilanti. I was lucky enough to be friends with the two baddest groups on campus, The Arm of Honor and the Football Team. A friend from High School was signed to play half-back and through him, I met most of the other guys. We had a blast! These guys knew how to have fun and they knew how to play football. My boy, Tom Boivin,,Big Mike Erickson, Pat "Pook" Laughlin, "Big Willy" Wilcox, Woody and, of course, Wild Barry Stokes (who would enjoy over ten years in the NFL to this day). They treated me as one of their own. They came West on Washtenaw to see me, I went East. And, with Charlie Batch at QB, they made it all the way to the MAC finals. My college experience was double because of those relationships and I will never cheer against the Eagles because of it... unless they're playing Big Blue!
