I played against Tony in high school

talk about a man against boys. We were up 7-0 in the 1st and Fulton had 4th and long near midfield. Instead of punting, they ran a sweep left which was easily smelled out and strung out to the sidelines. Tony hit and bounced off our 240 DT on a cutback, just flat stood him up, then in successive contact, hit and bounced off the defensive end and a LB, reversed field and ran to the opposite sideline where his speed enabled him to turn the corner and run for about a 40 yard TD. He probably ran 120 yards to get there. It was simply an amazing run. And of course it took all the wind out of our sails. Tony wound up running for five or six TDs that game before they pulled him late in the 3rd. Etched in my memory.
