End—(Northeastern Louisiana/Tulane/Oklahoma City) Washington Redskins 1947-55; Coach—Houston Oilers 1965
Bones is the best end for pass-catching the Redskins ever had. He was an altogether different type. He had speed, he had height, he had great hands, he had everything. I would say he was the best end I ever threw to.
He is buried in Crosslawn Cemetery, Wynne, Arkansas.
Center—(Hardin-Simmons) Chicago Bears 1940-52 [College Football Hall of Fame 1960, Pro Football Hall of Fame 1966]
After Nagurski, the most powerful was Bulldog Turner. He came along in 1940, I believe. He used to rattle my ribs a lot, too. I lit into him to protect myself, as I had to do against Nagurski. Ah, that Bulldog, he weighed about 245 and had a twenty-one-inch collar, was a great blocker on offense and on defense was as fine a linebacker as ever played the game. They talk about Dick Butkus, but I'm not sure Butkus could carry Bulldog's shoes.
He is buried in Greenbriar Cemetery, Gatesville, Texas.
