What happened to the post on recruiting class of 52? Not able to find it. Interesting to me since I do remember those days. My family lived in Sioux City in the 1940s, home of Ray Lemek. I believe my dad knew his dad, and talked to the elder Lemek during Ray's career. My dad operated a Standard gas station in the 40s and maybe Ray's dad did also. I recall his dad telling my dad how tough the practices were.

Seems to me Ray had some sort of surgery his senior year, maybe appendix, and could not play the final games. They put him in the backfield one play in the finale game (Southern Cal?) just so he could be on the field with no contact. Maybe I'm wrong......
