What can you say about a player who became a legend on the gridiron and then an icon in the operating room?

What can you say about someone who re-wrote his team's and his league's record book week after week?

What can you say about an athlete at a most-demanding college who starred in three sports while still doing wonders in the classroom?

What can you say about someone who, even in retirement, is giving back" to the young athletes who play the sport he loves?

You can simply say the name: "Archie Roberts," and that should be enough.

Please click on the above links to learn about this remarkable Lion's amazing story.

(And here are some other thoughts and great stories about Roberts from his teammate and #1 receiving target. Roger Dennis '66.)
