W. D., as we called him, was a fine man. I mean a fine human being. I met him at Morehouse College in Atlanta. He used to serve in the cafeteria line, and by-the-way, used to give me a smidgen of a little more helpings ( i.e., two or three more noodles), or something like that. Once at a game at Morris Brown Stadium, he was on duty. I was getting all worked-up with some of the Morehouse football teamers' not running the right plays. I said: let me call the play - "i" was in the stadium, of course. It just so happened that that very play was called. The 'House made a successful drive down-field. I got excited. I jumped up and said" Oh man, "i'm" coaching now!! W. D. quickly looked at the other guys, shook his head as if to say: "He had nothing to do with it," and smiled as he continued, without missing a beat, with his policing duties. I appreciated his "input." He was a great Morehouse Man!
