"It was a big deal and something I'll always remember."

Bill Bates: We started blitzing, because we didn't think (Walker) would be able to pick them up. We had a blitz from one of the sides. He cut back to the left, and our coaches always told us to break down for a tackle. So I broke down.
Of course, you know how it ends. But click over if you haven't already read it and indulge yourself.
