But my first year Christmas. See I established myself as a football player my freshman year. You know they were quite happy with me, and the team was going to the Orange Bowl that year, and Coach Butts asked me if I wanted to go and I said no, I wanted to go home. He says, “Well that is up to you.” So when it came time to go home, I didn’t have any money to take the bus, so Coach Hollis was in charge of things back then.
That is Howell Hollis?
Yeah, and I went to see Coach Hollis, and I says, “Coach, I need money to go home. I need a bus ticket. I don’t want money. Just give me a bus ticket to go home and come back.” He says, “Well, we can’t do that.” I says, “Well …” He says, “I can only give you a one-way ticket.” I said, “Fine, if you want me, come and get me. I’ll stay home.” He said, “Wait a while. I will give you the other ticket.” I knew right then and there, they wanted me to play football at Georgia because I already established myself as a freshman. So I says, “If you only want to give me one way, fine. If you want me back, come and get me,” so he finally agreed to give me a bus ticket to go both ways.
A round trip ticket. Found a way to do that to get you back.
Yeah, to come back. Yeah.
