Tony Parrish. Hated seeing him in 49ers uniform
Great pickAndy Livingston, No. 48.
Came to the Bears as a 19 year old out of Phoenis Jr College and was the youngest player ever in the NFL. At 6' 1" 237, he was said to be faster than Gale Sayers and even ran back a kickoff for a TD.. Played very little his first year, 1964, and then had an opportunity in 1965. He averaged 5.8 ypc, and the sky was the limit for this young phenom.
But he tore his knee up his third yearand was never the same . Played four years for the Bears and then a couple of years for NO. You wonder what he could have been if he'd stayed healthy...
i sat next to his niece on a plane ride years ago he's somewhere out near FTW.....i still remember him losing one of his gonads
