The Blurbs: Gale Says Gale Sayers Has to Spin

“What gave me the biggest thrill wasn’t the 95-yard kickoff return. I got the biggest thrill from the 5- or 10- or 12-yard run. That type of run you had to do some things to get that yardage. When you break into the open, anybody can run 40 or 50 yards by themselves. The thrill for Gale Sayers was what he did to get open. In that 5- or 10-yard area, you have to run over somebody, you have to fake somebody, and you have to spin.”
