Rest in peace, Cookie.

1953.....a cold day at old Pitt Stadium. The team from the town of Donora were playing Harbrack High for the WPIAL football championship. I was a member of the Donora High band.

I remember only 1 play! Harbrack was in Donora territory advancing toward the goal line in a 0-0 tie. Harbrack lined up for the play. Immediately after the ball was snapped, a huge fellow from Harbrack blew out of the line of scrimmage running toward the end zone. The Harbrack quarterback threw a perfect, but bullet pass which literally bounced around on the finger tips of the big fullback. But the ball was dropped. Incomplete pass. The game ended at 0-0. That fullback was none other than the late "Cookie Gilcrist. Donora's quarterback was Pete Bozic; Donora coach was "Flick" Russell.

Anyone else out there remember that play?

Did Cookie ever play for a small football team in Buffalo, in the late 50's early 60's?
