sad to hear of the passing of another greats of the Cleveland Browns. one of the many greats that was coached by the legendary Paul Brown, he certainly deserves to be in the hall of fame for the great career he had. now he is playing for the greatest coach of all. may god be with your family at this time of sadness. rest in peace mike and thank you for the great career you had

Mike was my idol as I grew up. He was 4 years ahead of me at DeLaSalle, but in those days the High schools started football practice about a week before the colleges.So Mike would join us in practice for that week. He was very helpful, but also a lot of fun. In the spring of "51 Mike asked me to join other potential recruits at Kansas. It was there that I learned that it was true what our coach said about him and KU, "At Kansas, they think he is god"
Later, I recall how...

Dear Ann Joe and I are so sorry for your lost he was truly a great man. He always had time to stop and say a few words even when he was being call to the tee. The Lakes lost a true friend.
