GATA Tra Battle

I'm not sure there's ever been a smaller player to play so big. And back in 2006 when the Dawgs hit the Plains as big underdogs, Tra Battle had more "receptions" than any Abuurn receiver and practically beat the WarTigers singlehandedly.

Battle went undrafted in 2007, but has served on a few NFL teams since. After being cut in September 2009 from the Cleveland Browns' practice squad, he joined the Hartford Colonials of the United Football League.

But one thing's for sure, the diminutive Dawg safety is still showing up in Brandon Cox nightmares. He may not have had the physical gifts that Thomas Davis or Greg Blue had. But he had heart...and his blood ran red and black.

GATA Tra Battle!
