    You're whipping out all these NCAA facts - where's the Magnus Opus we were working on?

    Ray McDonald, 3rd in '65 NCAA discus as a soph; he was, as I recall, as decent dual-meet hurdler, but never really of national class. Went to Washington Redskins; found this bit on an NFL history site that makes him "immortal"

    <<“There are two ways of motivation,” said Sam Huff, who had come out of retirement to become a player-coach under Lombardi. “One is through fear and the other is through group motivation. Lombardi motivated through fear.”
     
    A big fear that players had was for their jobs. Being cut was always a clear and present danger for those who did not do things Lombardi’s way. Even being a recent first-round draft pick didn’t grant any immunity. When fullback Ray McDonald showed up late for the team’s first meeting in Carlisle, Lombardi stopped speaking and asked the third-year player what his name was. “Ray McDonald,” the player said. Those were his last words as a Redskin as Lombardi announced to the team right then and there that McDonald had been cut. From then on, job security dictated that one keep one’s watch set to Lombardi Time, which was ten minutes faster than Eastern Time.>>

    Thanks, Garry. I am new to this BB so I never saw those threads. Answering my own question, I remember at a Seattle-Times meet in ca. 1965 there was an athlete called Roy McDonald (I think) who was a football star at Idaho and who competed in the shot and the HH.

    Versatility question

    I remember one year Rory Kotinek was US-ranked in the high jump and the javelin. Before the war it was not uncommon especially for women, to have great success in unrelated disciplines (Ostermeyer, Zaharias). Does anyone know of any other examples of non-decathletes who excelled in two or more apparently unrelated events?
