When you look at the game of American football, you will find many players who have only one goal they want to achieve when their careers are completed: To reach the Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio. Many of the famous names are there today. However, there are others who played the game a little bit differently. They still managed to play football like all the others, but their achievements were never recognized. Chris Yunkers is one of these players. Although Yunkers never made it to Canton, he did manage to be inducted into the Minor League Hall of Fame in Nevada recently which caters to the minor league players in the U.S., Europe, semi-pros and some of the collegiate football athletes who never had the opportunity to make it into the National Football League.

Dining With Duvall By Lynn Duvall Last month I enjoyed a meal in the Hoover High School cafeteria, catered by Acapulco. My table mates were strangers, though, like me, they were graduates of the high school. We'd gathered with nearly 100 other grads to work on plans for the upcoming 75th anniversary celebration on May 15. One gentleman talked effusively about the jazz ensemble at the school. His enthusiasm ran very high. Finally, when he stopped for a breath, I asked, "How do you know so much about them?"
