Trivial Update – An 89 Yard Toss Sweep

#ThursdaysRTrivial episode 47 coming up right after this PSA: Beware of trojan horses named Reggie.

#ThursdaysRTrivial episode 47 "Who I Be?" It's time for the (semi) weekly Twitter Twivia show that's as expanded as it's 36 waist will allow. REPLY back your answer for a chance at a fabulous prize. I was a Parade All-American from Lumberton NC and was a first team All-American in 1988 when I rushed for 1216 yards and 20 TDs. And eventually I was the 7th pick in the NFL draft. Who am I?

Big h/t to Bubba 'n Earl for the Thursday inspiration. While there have been plenty of much heralded tailbacks that didn't quite pan out, Tim Worley turned a what might've been into a stellar career. After sitting out nearly two full seasons with injuries, his last season 'tween the hedges was one of the best ever. If you haven't read Streit's writeup, click here.

I chose this as the question to provide this week's contestants a bit of a challenge and to see how well read they were. Cuz this one came down to whether you recognized it was Worley or had spent part of the day sittin' on the 50. And here's how it played out:

Matt has suddenly become a real TrT contender and enters the fray for the second consecutive episode. For that distinction he takes home a copy of Blue Velvet starring the late Dennis Hopper, a film that was set in Lumberton but filmed in nearby Wilmington.

Angie gets a commemorative #38 jersey. Hopefully when she wears it, she won't feel so old.

And I hear Alan is in need of a vacation, so he gets the grand prize - four leftover Fast Passes to Thunder Mountain at Disney World we weren't able to use due to a sudden thunderstorm. Now he can take the twins and move to the front of the line on his next visit.

And for you Reader, Worley was the highest selection in the NFL draft at #7 overall by the Steelers until who and what year?
